A remarkable tale of three generations--spanning a century--of Kwakiutl carvers in the same family, this volume tells who these artists were and what they created. Scores of totem poles, masks, and figures that they carved appear in the photographs, which include some rare 19th century archival images. Included in the text is a history of many of these artifacts. But most importantly, this is the story of the lives, traditions, and beliefs of three extraordinary Kwakiutl artists.
