Images from the Great West
by Marnie Walker Gaede
Publisher's Description
"This book portrays a rugged land and its writers. The images take us on a journey to the lands of the Plains Indians, the places visited by Lewis and Clark, George Catlin, Alfred Jacob Miller, the fur trappers, and the U. S. Cavalry. A few of the locations are familiar today as National Parks--Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Glacier. Also represented are the sites of Marias and Sand Creek massacres, historic wickiups and war lodges, Crow and Sioux rock art, and Gaede's portraits of such great western writers as Ivan Doig, Norman Maclean, and Wallace Stegner. Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist A. B. Guthrie, Jr., contributes his own interpretation of the western heartland, and Edward Abbey's moving tribute to Guthrie is one of the noted conservationist's last published writings."--the publisher.
