Original Language: German
The efforts of writer Gerber, a German ethnologist, and photographer Bruggman to integrate the traditional and contemporary art of the Northwest Coast people keep this work from being just another art book. Beautiful photographs of the noted wood carvings of the region are shown along with the people who make similar objects today. Gerber shows the impact of the lush environment on the art of the area. Brief descriptions of each native group are complimented by appropriate photographs. Readers wanting to read in depth about traditional and contemporary art should consult books by Bill Holm ( Spirit and Ancestor , LJ 5/1/88, is one). Cultural discussions are also more detailed elsewhere.
