Native Rock Carvings of the Northwest Coast
Author: Beth Hill
Format: Paperback
  • In her book, Native Rock Carvings of the Northwest Coast, Beth Hill gives a fascinating introduction to the subject of Aboriginal Petroglyphs of the Northwest Coastal Region - BC, Washington, Oregon and Alaska. Beth Hill and her husband Ray travelled the coast for close to 20 years, recording the known sites, and discovering others.

    A must-have guide to Native petroglyphs.

    Review
    ... a concise and clearly written treatise on the topic. It explains the relationship between religion and art, cosmology and self-expression. Beth Hill's descriptions of rock carvings written in the context of their possible shamanistic meanings bring each engraved scene she describes to life.... For such a small book, it is one of the most complete treatments I have read. The black and white pictures are great, and she gives you the story behind each example. One seldom comes across a book that gives so much information in so small a format.

Northwestern Wild Berries
Format: Paperback
  • A Field Guide to the Berries of the North West.

    Wild Berries contains a simple key and nearly 100 magnificent colour photographs to guide you quickly to berry identification. Let us look together at the more commonly seen wild berries plants of the Pacific Northwest - roughly the area west of the Rocky Mountains from southern Alaska to the Columbia River of further. We won't cover every last kind, for some may be left out that few of us will ever see. This book is not for the serious botanist, but for the family or individual seeking simple and reliable information about the berries along our roads and trails. Because this is not for the expert, we shall take some other liberties. We'll use the word berry in the popular sense rather than in the more restricted sense applied by the botanist. Also, we shall lump together some closely related kinds of plants.
