Discovering Totem Poles; A Traveler's Guide by Aldona Jonaitis

"Rising from a forest mist of soaring overhead in parks and museum, 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, Vancouver Island, 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 ninety 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."
