About the Book
This book guides readers to the many places in British Columbia, Washington and Alaska where totem poles can be found and helps viewers understand the “language” of the poles.
Learn about their origin and history, the symbols and ceremonies linked to them, types of figures and how to identify them, and where to see authentic poles and pole collections.
Pat Kramer spent many years researching the material in this book and worked closely with First Nations to create a fresh and revealing look at these incredible artifacts. Filled with fascinating facts, legends and photographs, Totem Poles is an excellent guide, reference and souvenir.
