From the Back Cover:

The most authoritative volume on artisan knitting
celebrates all the people in the knit-world continuum, from the animal and plant breeders who provide the fiber, to the spinners who transform it into yarn, to the dyers who give it its brilliance, to the designers and artisans who turn yarn into objects of unsurpassed beauty. In America Knits, you'll meet the country's most talented artisans and use their meticulous patterns to make out-of-this-world garments for adults and children.

First published in hardcover as Knitting in America (Artisan, 1996)
