Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Skillfully integrating Jackson's travels, life experiences and photographic career, this attractive nonfiction book introduces readers to a man and his lifework that captured and reflects the history, geography, and Native American culture of the American West. The eleven chapters, each headed by an appropriate quote from literature or history, present topics such as the Hayden Expeditions, the rise of the railroads, natural curiosities like Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon, and the culture clash between Native America and Euro-American expansion. Enlivened by many quotes from primary sources and striking black-and-white reproductions of Jackson's work, this well-researched volume should appeal to a wide age range of readers interested in photography, history, geography and anthropology. A map, timeline, glossary, index, extensive bibliography and list of places to view Jackson's work, are included. 1999, Holiday House, Ages 11 up, $18.95. Reviewer: Gisela Jernigan
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Lawlor describes the artist's life and work, but also goes further, investigating the historical and social background that made his photos relevant and the crucial part they played in shaping national attitudes. The book is arranged neatly around phases of Jackson's varied career. He photographed for railroads, explored and surveyed with the Hayden Expeditions, published the first photographs of the Yellowstone Valley, and captured the rapid changes of the West in pictures of American Indians and mining towns. Lawlor gives extensive background about the land and events that shaped Jackson's West. With clear and engaging prose, she covers topics as diverse as industrialization, the Gilded Age, railroad developments, photographic techniques, racial prejudice, and the decline of the American Indian lifestyle. The text frequently diverges from Jackson's life for several pages at a time in order to provide background, but the information ultimately provides a richer appreciation of the photographer's experiences. Jackson himself is represented through descriptions of his life, excerpts from his diaries, and dozens of reproductions. Few intimate details or strong emotions related to Jackson's personal life emerge, but his fascination with the West and his dedication to his art come through consistently. The photographer's experiences touched upon many key developments in the history of the American West, and Lawlor successfully brings the era to life within the framework of this man's remarkable career.-Steven Engelfried, Deschutes County Library, Bend, OR Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
