Alaska's Totem Poles (Paperback)
In this newly revised edition of ALASKA'S TOTEM POLES, readers learn about the history and use of totems, clan crests, symbolism, and much more. A special section describes where to go to view totems. Foreword writer David A. Boxley offers the unique perspective of a Native Alaskan carver who has been a leader in the renaissance of totem carving.
Author Pat Kramer traveled throughout the homelands of the Totem People - along Alaska's Panhandle, the coast of British Columbia, and into the Northwest - meeting the people, learning their stores, and researching and photographing totem poles. Pat is also a tour director and the author and photographer of several other books, including Vancouver, Gardens of British Columbia, and Totem Poles, a guidebook to Western Canada's totems.
