Probably no native American handicrafts are more widely admired than Navajo weaving and Navajo and Pueblo silver work. This book contains the first full and authoritative account of the Indian silver jewelry fashioned in the Southwest by the Navajo and the Zuni, Hopi, and other Pueblo peoples. It is written by John Adair, a trained ethnologist who has become a recognized expert on this craft. “A volume conspicuously pleasing in its format and so strikingly handsome in its profuse illustrations as to rivet your attention once it chances to fall open. With the care of a meticulous and thorough scholar, the author has told the story of his several years’ investigation of jewelry making among the Southwestern Indians. So richly decorative are the plates he uses for his numerous illustrations showing the jewelry itself, the Indians working at it and the Indians wearing it—that the conscientious narrative is surrounded by an atmosphere of genuinely exciting visual experience.”—The Dallas Times Herald The Navajo and Pueblo Silversmiths provides a full history of the craft and the actual names and localities of the pioneer craftsmen who introduced the art of the silversmith to their people. Despite its present high stage of development, with its many subtle and often exquisite designs, the art of working silver is not an ancient one among the Navajo and Pueblo Indians. There are men still living today who remember the very first silversmiths.

"Of Hester Bateman's background many theories have been advanced, the most common being that she was of American origin." Research shows that Hester Needham (1709-1794) was the daughter of Thomas and Ann Needham, and was probably born in Clerkenwell, England. She married John Bateman and (after his death in 1760) became established as a silversmith in 1761. She and her family continued to be successful silversmiths. Includes genealogical data about the Needham and Bateman families in England to 1650.
