Cowichan sweaters - the iconic garments originated by the Coast Salish women in the early 1900s - are featured in this fascinating book, which tells of the knitters as they "... 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." Spectacular old photos are plentiful and the narrative is most engaging. Now includies the Big Lebowski in his shawl collared replica of a Cowichan jacket. Hardcover, 328pp.
