The People of Red River: A Costume Buide
by: Barry and Judy McPherson
Just in time for the 2012 bicentennial ceremonies commemorating the war of 1812 there is now an excellent costume guide available. Over the years, Barry and Judy McPherson collected costume and textile information from primary sources that have only been available to them and those they know. Now, with the support and encouragement of the Dept. of Culture & Heritage, Province of Manitoba in Canada, a portion of their work is now available to all. This full color guide contains a many plates drawn from sources in Scotland, Ireland and throughout North America. Accompanying these plates is an outstanding collection of art developed by Janet La France that serves not only as part of a costume guide, but also as an introduction to the People of Red River. Along with an extensive textile and costume glossary and a bibliography this will help the authenticity of early 19th century historic interpreters.
