0856133043 128 pages. Examines the way of life, artifacts and beliefs of this little known and fascinating people. Werner Forman's colour photographs, taken specially for this volume, show the threatening beauty of the long coastal strip which the tribes inhabited, and the exquisitely executed details of the objects they made. In this harmonious approach, the American Indian world comes alive - the world of Tsonoqa (the wild woman of the woods), of the Crooked-Beak-of-Heaven, and countless other spirits - but above all the world dominated by the physical representation of their world-view, the totem. Light wear. Unmmarked. Nice copy.
