"Carvings and Commerce is a compendium of the full range of model poles, with excellent photographs and available documentation. It is a useful reference book for collectors and museum curators . . ."
"Carvings and Commerce presents almost two hundred examples of model totem poles that index not only an array of carvers' creative and strategic responses to the colonial encounter and the development of curio and 'Indian art' markets but also. . . the changing culture of consumer response and institutional validation."
-Karen Duffek, Museum Anthropology, November 2013
