Many Native Americans photographed by Edward S. Curtis (1868–1952) called him Shadow Catcher. But the images he captured were far more powerful than mere shadows. When the twentieth century was just getting underway, Curtis began documenting North American Indian culture in words and photographs. Today, almost one hundred years later, his work still stands as the most extensive and informative collection of its kind. His photographs are more than mere documents; they are works of art revealing subtleties of human expression missing from other historical and anthropological records. Filled with Curtis’s breathtaking photographs and available for the first time in a paperback edition, Shadow Catcher traces Curtis’s life and work from his boyhood in Wisconsin, through his first photo expedition to Alaska in 1897 and the completion of The North American Indian collection in 1930, to his death in 1952.

"A magnificent biography indeed, chronicling the early 20th-century photographer's quest to document Native American culture.""More than a reference and more than a biography of Curtis, this carefully researched, highly readable book emphasizes the photographer''s perseverance and quest for quality and can serve as a model for young people."--"School Library Journal" (starred review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
