Native Nations: First North Americans as Seen by Edward Curtis
by Christopher Cardozo
Publisher's Description
"In the early part of this century, Edward Curtis set out to photograph and document the tribal traditions of North America's Indians -- an enterprise that became a twenty-five-year obsession. The result was his limited-edition magnum opus, The North American Indian a twenty-volume work with more than 2,000 gravure images and copious anthropological notes -- far and away the most important photographic record of Native American culture ever produced. Native Nations assembles 125 of Curtis' finest photographs, each reproduced in magnificent quadrotone using today's state-of-the-art printing technology. Selected by Curtis expert Christopher Cardozo and introduced by leading Native American scholar, George P. Horse Capture."--the publisher.
