In her new book, “My Tree of Life as an Appraiser of American Indian Art: My Viewpoint” (published by Archway Publishing), Dr. Leona M Zastrow provides readers with knowledge about appraising American Indian art for donations, estates, re-sale and insurance. Zastrow offers information about federal laws and market values. Over 20 Indian artists are cited in the full-color book.

Zastrow was inspired to write the book, in part, due to her “promise to Indian elders that I would ‘hand on’ what they taught me about Indian art, request of clients, artists and colleagues to share my knowledge about Indian art.”

From pots, vases and figurines to jewelry, bolo ties and belts, the book features color pictures of many of the types of items up for appraisal that help the would-be appraiser to understand what it is they should be looking for when viewing a specific piece.
