Visions of the North

Visions of the North

Native Arts of the Northwest Coast

By Don and Debra McQuiston

Compelling photographs of Northwest Indian art—and images of the stunning landscape vistas that have shaped it—fill this gorgeous new volume for fans of these increasingly popular, collectable artifacts, as well as for the many travelers to the Pacific Northwest. Throughout Northern California, Oregon, and Washington, and as far north as Glacier Bay, Alaska, the totem poles, ceremonial masks, decorative blankets, canoes, and other elaborate items crafted by Native Americans reflect the resources and geological diversity of their abundant environment. Over 130 full-color photographs and a fascinating text reveal the details of this strikingly beautiful region and the rich artistic heritage of its inhabitants. An exciting companion to Spirit Faces: Contemporary Native American Masks from the Northwest (Chronicle Books, Spring 1995), this evocative book will be both an essential acquisition and a memorable souvenir.
