Houses of Wood

Author(s): Bonnie Shemie

Synopsis: The Native of the Northwest Coast were blessed with a mild climate, waters teaming with fish and abundant vegetation, including giant ceders, among the world’s tallest and most versatile trees. With only small handmade tools, these people managed to fell the massive trees, transport them back to their villages, build spectacular wooden dwellings and embellish them with their art admired world over. Bonnie Shemie describes how the three major types of houses found in Oregon up the Canadian Coast to southeastern  Alaska were constructed, and the huge festivals that took place in the completed dwellings.
