All Aboard Reading!How do people pass on their legends and their history without written language? For Native American tribes in the Pacific Northwest, it was through totem poles. In a book children can read all by themselves, they will discover many fascinating facts about these legendary "storytellers;" how a totem pole was made; the different kinds of totem poles; what the poles mean; and much more. The text is easy and engaging and the beautiful illustrations by Allan Eitzen have the look of woodcuts.
