This is a children's book, essentially, which I picked up from the library looking for an easy introduction to Native cultures of the Pacific NW, preferably one with lots of pictures and easy reading. And that's exactly what this was: plenty of old pictures of Tlingit, Kwakiutl, Nootka, with short, pithy discussions of their traditional foods, dress, social structures, art forms, religions, and economic activities. Nothing especially in-depth, but enough to orient me for the more scholarly works that are further down my reading list.

Josie Please keep us updated on the more scholarly works! I've always wanted a bit more on NA culture than I learned in school, but haven't wanted to wade through textbook-like reading. If you find something good, let me know!
