Within its pages you'll find more than forty close-up photographs of dream catchers; a review of their history, legends, lore and cultural symbolism; and a stunning collection of dream catchers that are at once craft and high art. The text is suitable for a popular audience while also thorough, rigorous and valuable in research. This edition has been redesigned with a new jacket.
