HANDICRAFTS OF THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS treats of handicrafts, both as a means of making or improving a living and as a means toward self-expression and a richer experience. The book deals particularly with the handicrafts of the Southern Appalachians with their pioneer background and especially with their modern revival and present-day practice. The last section of the work treats of the handicraft movement in rural America, and of the potentialities of the handicrafts in the fields of adult education and of recreation. There are one hundred and twelve full-page illustrations, eight of them in color and the remainder in photogravure, including fifty-eight photographs of mountain life and workers in the handicrafts made especially for the book by Doris Ulmann whose collection of photographs of craftsmen at work is unsurpassed.
