Vintage Hardcover Indian Music Makers by Robert Hofsinde (Gray-Wolf), 1967

This detailed description of Indian musical instruments and how they were made is the answer to a Den Mother's dream; she might even be tempted to try a musical play based on the cycle of Cherokee songs provided for every occasion from birth to death. Mr. Hofsinde's usual clear diagrammatic drawings show each step in the construction of a variety of tom-toms, drums (there's a difference) and rattles; some could be approximated. The significance of music in daily life and on ceremonial occasions is indicated throughout.
