Overview

Now back in print in an expanded edition with additional production notes and photos in full color, to coincide with major DVD launch from MGM in spring 2002. The fascinating official pictorial moviebook (over 300,000 copies sold of the first edition) of the seven-time Oscar®-winning film (including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay) takes readers behind the scenes to tell the complete story of the epic film, in a combination of screenplay and narrative, surrounded by text, photo, and art features on the Plains Indians, the frontier, and the Civil War history on which the movie was based. Includes articles by star/co-producer/director Kevin Costner, author Michael Blake, coproducer Jim Wilson and more than 170 photos and drawings—plus the complete cast and credits. Over 200 illustrations, 100 in color.

Editorial Reviews

Book Page
This companion book makes for fine post-movie rumination.
Knoxville News-Sentinel
A beautifully produced book...If you are looking for a memento of the film, you can't go wrong here.

A companion book unexpectedly rich in details about Indian culture.

YA-- With Costner's comment that the film ``Dances with Wolves will forever be my love letter to the past,'' the stage is set for this book, which is a testament to the affection and care expended on the film. Glorious photographs, actual screenplay, and explanatory comments from actors, technical advisors, and the authors provide background for this production. The magnificence of the Native American, wolf, and buffalo, along with the respect and concern with which this film was made, are captured in this stirring work .
