This full-color book depicts and explains the creation of and the stories behind the cedar totem poles which adorn the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe's campus and businesses, all designed and carved by Tribal Artist Dale Faulstich. Few people can drive through Blyn, Washington at the base of Sequim Bay without stopping to view and photograph the colorful and majestic totems, each of which tells a story of the Tribe and its social and natural history on the Olympic Peninsula. The book explains the process by which the trees are harvested and prepared for carving, the design, carving and decorating process, the tools used, installation of the poles (which are up to 50 feet tall), and the charming stories behind the animals and characters portrayed on each pole. Some of the stories are contemporary; others harken back to the teaching tales of the S'Klallam oral tradition. A beautiful book for carvers, historians, lovers of Native American art, this book is also a book of folktales suitable for reading to children, who will love finding the brightly painted animals in each accompanying photograph.
