About 300 modern and historical images reflect the faces of heroes, villains, and average citizens living ordinary and sometimes trying lives. Edited by Michael P. Malone, president of Montana State U., author and historian. Oversize: 10.25x12<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
