Horses and Bridles of the American Indians

This 12" x 13" book, with 500 color images of bridles from 25 museums and private collections, features the fancy beaded, quilled, and cloth bridles used by the tribes of North America, who bridled their horses in unique and beautiful ways.

Included is a chapter and numerous maps documenting new information on the Spread of the Horse to 125 tribes of North America, correcting more than a half century of erroneous publications.

Special chapters on tribal horse culture have been contributed by Nez Perce and Blackfoot historians.
