“Totems are my teachers,” says Pat Kramer, author of Totem Poles. Long since a transplant to the Pacific Northwest, her frequent travels have taken her to visit and photograph most of the windswept totem poles that remain standing throughout Alaska and B.C. “As well as research in book rooms and university archives, the stories that Native people continue to tell reflects the richness and constant refinement of the totem tradition.”

Color photographs, close up and in detail illustrate the informative text. "What's most surprising is the number of artists who also love the book." Kramer adds. This Altitude Superguide is a must have for totem lovers and woodcarvers alike. Additionally, the book is available in German, Totem Phaele.
