Indian Canoes of the Pacific Northwest (Seattle: Copper Canoe Press, 1960). Canoes of the Pacific Northwest were used as transportation up and down the coast, as war canoes, and for trade. Some of the largest canoes were made by the Haida of Haida Gwaii which could reach up to 18 metres in length. This book describes these traditional canoes that are found amongst the tribes along the Pacific Northwest Coast.
