The Big Canoe. Illustrated by W. Langdon Kihn

New York: The Junior Literary Guild / D. Appleton-Century Company, Inc., 1933. [xi], 257p., sketch-illustrated with nice Art Deco monochrome endsheets, hardbound in first editon green cloth boards. Slight edgewear, lacks the dust jacket, ownership signatures on front endsheet and titlepage and a tiny bookseller's fiche on rear pastedown. Quite clean and sound, a very good copy.

The Haida built ocean-going craft, pillaged other coastal tribes (taking captives as well as loot), then disappeared, about the time of white arrival. The tribe left expecially fine totem poles.
