Editorial Reviews

The lovely photos reproduced here portray pioneer life in eastern Montana in intimate detail. They are accompanied by a history of the region and the photographer, who arrived in Montana from Great Britain in the fall of 1889 as a 21-year-old bride on her honeymoon. She continued recording events for many years in diaries, letters, and other documents as well as in her pictures. This is a reprint of a work originally published by Knopf in 1990. Oversize: 10.5<">x10<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
Evelyn Cameron left her English home to become a rancher in Montana in the late 1800s: she used her photography skills to help support her family, and captured Montana life in the process. Photographing Montana gathers photos which portray early Montana life and deserves a spot in any Montana history collection as well as in art libraries seeking examples of regional photographic talent. Excerpts from her diaries and letters include plenty of autobiographical insights.
