Prayer to the Great Mystery
The Uncollected Writings and Photography of Edward S. CurtisBook - 1995 | 1st ed
An extraordinary collection of 243 b&w images, including many newly-discovered prints from the Library of Congress, taken by Curtis (1868-1952), famed photographer of Native America. The book presents him as a cultural anthropologist rather than as a patronizing romantic (as he is more often shown) and accompanies the photographs with myths and legends drawn from Curtis's 20-volume The North American Indian. c.
