    Wish I could have purchased it at Historial Park

    I recently visited the Sitka National Historical Park and was fascinated by the totem poles. I wanted to know more about them but found no gift shop at the visitors center. My son-in-law talked with one of the NPS people and got the URL for the online store. I ordered the book and it answered so many of my questions about the poles and what they represented.
