Alaska is home to some of the world's oldest totem poles. Once craved to signify family and rank to others in the community, they now express the pride and identity of First Nations people. In Alaska's Totem Poles, Pat Kramer writes that they are North Americas' most unique contribution to the world of aboriginal art. She provides information on the history of totem poles, the legends that inspire them, and the customs and ceremonies that surround carving and erecting totem poles. Readers will also meet the carvers of past and present and learn where they can see famous totem poles.
