Description
(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Timothy Egan, author of The Big Burn and the National Book Award winner The Worst Hard Time, returns with this stirring portrait of the charismatic, driven photographer who produced a remarkable anthropological catalog of the American Indian. Edward Curtis was a friend to presidents, vaudeville stars, and leading thinkers. But in 1900, at the age of 32, he left that life to spend the next three decades among the Acoma, the Salish, the Hopi, and many other groups, documenting the stories and rituals of more than 80 tribes as their old ways were disappearing.

"In this hauntingly beautiful book, Egan brings Curtis to life as vividly and with as much depth, heart and understanding as Curtis himself put into his timeless portraits. This is a story for the ages."—Candice Millard
