Product Description

Used Book in Good Condition

In the summer of 1900, Edward Curtis gave up a successful photography career to pursue a quixotic plan: to photograph
all the Indian communities in North America. He quickly learned that his subjects were dying off fast, so he’d need to
hurry if he was “to capture the essence of their lives before that essence disappeared.” A mountaineer, explorer,
intrepid photojournalist, and amateur anthropologist, Curtis was Ansel Adams crossed with Annie Leibovitz, a willful and
passionate chronicler of a people he came to love. “I want to make them live forever,” Curtis said in the early days of
his decades-long mission. As Egan’s thrilling story attests, he succeeded, even though he died penniless and alone.
