In 1900, photographer Edward Curtis (1868-1952) made a decision that changed his life and, in a sense, made him immortal. He largely abandoned his lucrative portrait studio work and began a thirty-year project to record images of Native Americans who, he believed, were doomed to extinction, destroyed his marriage and left him destitute. This new biography by National Book Award winner Timothy Egan (The Worst Hard Times; The Big Burn) recaptures the story of a man both entrapped by his time and ahead of it. Editor's recommendation.
