Wakiash and the First Totem Pole

- Wakiash and the First Totem Pole Native American literature is, in general, not to my liking. I find that it is very often too far-fetched for even my imagination.

I found the piece very slow and quite far-fetched. However, I enjoyed the piece from a fictional literature standpoint.
