The First Peoples of the Pacific Coast recorded their history and preserved their legends, myths and stories on spectacularly-carved totem poles. This Altitude SuperGuide helps you to understand the "language" of these totem poles.

Learn how to carve a pole; experience a pole-raising ceremony. Soar with the Thunderbird or tempt the unwary with Dzunkwa, while experiencing the legends of the First People's past and present.

Colour photographs and archival images help illustrate the informative text. Pat Kramer spent many years researching the historical material as well as working closely with the First Peoples themselves in order to bring a fresh and revealing view on these incredible living artifacts.

This Altitude SuperGuide shows the many locations throughout western Canada where totem poles can be found, making this book an excellent guide as well as a handy reference, source book and souvenir.
