Art of the Northwest Coast provides a much-needed compendium on the Native art traditions of this area and fills a long-standing lacuna in the literature..I recommend this book for successfully accomplishing what it sets out to achieve. Museum Anthropology Review A highly accessible survey of the indigenous art of Cascadia, a panoramic view that stands on the shoulders of pioneering scholars Bill Holm, Robin Wright, and Steve Brown. Jonaitis attempts to answer the question of how so much art, so finely made, developed here, in this strip of land from Puget Sound to Yakutat in Alaska, and she does so with an engaging storyteller's voice and a sumptuous wealth of illustrations.
