About this title
This book traces the evolution and use of silver bridles as well as gorgets, pectorals, hairplates and concho belts, first obtained through trade networks, and later made by indians. The bridles pictured are those used by the indians of the Southern Plains tribes and the Navajo, as well as from Mexico. 500 images of silver bridles from museums and private collections, as well as depictions in ledger drawings and historic photos, document these bridles in use by the southwestern tribes. This is a large format (12 by 13 1/2 in) full color volume with stunning images.About the Author:
