Many Native Americans photographed by Edward S. Curtis (1868–1952) called him Shadow Catcher. But the images he captured were far more powerful than mere shadows. When the twentieth century was just getting underway, Curtis began documenting North American Indian culture in words and photographs. Today, almost one hundred years later, his work still stands as the most extensive and informative collection of its kind. His photographs are more than mere documents; they are works of art revealing subtleties of human expression missing from other historical and anthropological records. Filled with Curtis’s breathtaking photographs and available for the first time in a paperback edition, Shadow Catcher traces Curtis’s life and work from his boyhood in Wisconsin, through his first photo expedition to Alaska in 1897 and the completion of The North American Indian collection in 1930, to his death in 1952.

Fascinating story of a real man's dedication to preserving the memory of the indigenous Americans. A tale of fortitude and sacrifice. He was not "perfect"... scientific rigor sometimes lacking... but deserves to be remembered for the good he did, and the way he "kept going" though a life that wasn't easy.

Oh! And the photos are superb. One or two haunting.

This book is written for young adults or children making it a fast & easy read. Also includes many very nice photos. Barbara Davis's book has more photos and a lot more details about his life. It is all in what you want.

I had another edition of this book which I lent to a friend. In that edition I seem to remember that there were more full page photos taken by Curtis.
