An introduction to Mera's manuscript by Kate Peck Kent. Foreword by E. Boyd. "In this book, Mera's essay and the twenty-four superb blankets he chose as illustrations at last achieve the publication they so long deserved. The book describes the origins and history of the distinctive textiles woven by Spanish-Americans in New Mexico, examining the links between styles of blankets and the historical events that influenced their design and construction. Mera also clarifies the relationship between Pueblo, Navajo, and Hispanic weaving -- a relationship that still puzzles many people today."-- back cover blurb.
