Featuring new works from 36 of the most acclaimed artists on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border--among them Susan Point, Robert Davidson, Isabel Rorick, Jay Simeon, Preston Singletary, and Dempsey Bob--Seekers and Travellers covers a range of media, from glasswork to weaving, wood carving to metal jewelry.

Accompanying each piece is a statement by the artist explaining the inspiration or technique for the work, placing it in the context not only of the artist's oeuvre but of contemporary Northwest Coast art. While the book is divided into three sections (Traditional, Cross-cultural, and Contemporary), what it clearly reveals is a shift from art representative of a particular region or culture to a new pan-Indian art that draws on the traditions of many First Nations and blends them with contemporary interpretations and materials. The result is a visually rich, evocative collection that is sure to enthrall, inspire, and amaze.
