In this book, the totem poles of 55 villages, extending along the Pacific Coast from Washington to Alaska, have been sketched and photographed, dissected for design elements, and analyzed stylistically. A labor of love, this study discusses and analyzes in great detail the symbolism, styles, and carving methods of hundreds of totem poles.
