She has traveled throughout the United States to interview experts in the art of weaving as well as the descendants of the women depicted throughout this book. The result is a visually stunning collection of coverlets along with personal histories of the weavers that brings together these textiles and their stories, stimulating a new respect and appreciation for the artistic excellence and long tradition of mountain coverlet hand weaving.
