Summary This delightful book, amply illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, captures the significant role such traditional arts as basketmaking, needlework, and decoy carving continue to play in the daily life of many Wisconsinites. Several chapters by folklorists provide a context for understanding the ways folk artists use their work to connect the past and present, express ethnic identity, celebrate community, and live creatively off the land. This book is a companion to an exhibit that appeared at the Cedarburg Cultural Center (Dec. '97-Feb. '98), the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay (March-May '98), the State Historical Museum in Madison (June-Oct. '98), and the Chippewa Valley Museum in Eau Claire (Nov.-Feb. '99). Distributed for the Cedarburg Cultural Center.
