Discovering Totem Poles: A Traveler's Guide
University of Washington Press, 2012 - 96 ページ
Rising from a forest mist or soaring overhead in parks and museums, magnificent cedar totem poles have captured the attention and imagination of visitors to Washington State, British Columbia, and Alaska.
Discovering Totem Poles is the first guidebook to focus on the complex and fascinating histories of the specific poles visitors encounter in Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver, Alert Bay, Prince Rupert, Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), Ketchikan, Sitka, and Juneau. It debunks common misconceptions about totem poles and explores the stories behind the making and displaying of 90 different poles.
Travelers with this guide in their pockets will return home with a deeper knowledge of the monumental carvings, their place in history, and the people who made them.
Aldona Jonaitis is the author of a number of books including Art of the Northwest Coast and, with Aaron Glass, he Totem Pole: An Intercultural History. She is director emerita of the University of Alaska Museum of the North.
