Sono Nis Press, Winlaw, BC, 2010. Quarto (9.25”) in black cloth with gilt spine titles; dust jacket. The top corner of the front flap has been folded; the last numbered leaf (p.237-8) has been mis-bound and protruded beyond the edge of the rest of the text block and has been folded such that it is flush; no loss of text. Overall, a very nice copy of an uncommon title other than paperback. Map at p. 6; b&w illustrations throughout; Select Bibliography, Index and a ‘Note on Names’. Laid in is a clipped newspaper interview with the author.

“Sylvia shows how the story of the seater and its knitters reflects the history of the Coast Salish people in twentieth-century Canada. The knitters experienced grinding poverty, destructive racism, government paternalism, and cultural appropriation, but they battled back, using their sweaters to survive and to disprove the stereotypes that excluded them from the mainstream society and economy.
