    Bill Reid was a legendary Northwest Coast Native Haida sculptor In this volume are collected many of his essays on making art and poetry, Haida history and culture, and the challenges of being a Native artist in the Twentieth Century Although he writes openly about genocide and the loss of culture, his joy, pride in Haida culture, and humor shine always through.
