The Inside Passages of Alaska with its notorious fog shrouded coastal islands have given birth to sea monsters, gian birds and clams and the feared land otter men, as well as Raven. Raven the trickster, the transformer, the hero of numerous stores from Russia down through Canada. Once, carved totems dotted S.E. Alaska, marking winter camps, telling of family crests, legends, deaths, wars, shaming those of updaid debts, and acts of chiefs displaying their wealth and power. Through the passing of time there are still stores and totems that tell of an age of phratries, although now some stores are without totems and sadly some totems are without stories. In this book you read of these stories that shaped S.E. Alaska.
