Item Description...
A photographic life's work of American photographer, Edward Sheriff Curtis, who studied the North American Indians, from the Mexican border to the Bering Straits. This book, a tribute to Curtis's achievements, make his photographs, of more than 80 American Indian tribes, available.

Publishers Description
At the turn of the century, the American photographer Edward Sheriff Curtis (1868?1952) started on his thirty-year project to produce a monumental study of North American Indians. Using an approach that was both artistically and scientifically ambitious he recorded, in words and pictures, the traces of the traditional Indian way of life that was already beginning to die out. With tireless personal commitment Curtis visited American Indian tribes from the Mexican border to the Bering Straits, gaining their confidence by his patience and sensitivity. This, his photographic life's work, was printed in 20 volumes between 1907 and 1930 as The North American Indian. There were only 272 copies in total, so original copies are now extremely rare. This book gives lasting life to Curtis's great achievements by making the photographs available again.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Edward S. Curtis' best book, The North American Indian  Jul 1, 2008
The paperback version of this book is somewhat small, 5 1/2 x 7 3/4, so the pictures inside are quite small, making it hard to really accurately see the Indians. Many of the photos came out fairly dark, so the images are not clear and sharp. It does, however, chronicle the entire portfolio which Curtis completed in his original book. Since you can't usually find the original, this is the best you can get. Would be better in a larger format, however. Very interesting text.
Eye opening experience  Nov 30, 2007
I caught a special on the Documentary Channel called "Coming to Light: Edward Curtis". I realized right then and there that I had to see this book they were talking about: The North American Indian. This is truly a ONE-OF-A-KIND book. I leave this book out on my coffee table and it gets attention. And because it's mostly pictures, my 7 year old daughter loves it. The most beautiful and meaningful collection of photos ever. I wish more people knew of it. What Curtis went through to make this is equally intriguing as the book itself. BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT.
Excellent quality--a bargain!  Aug 21, 1998
6 frameable posters each about 18" x 12" (with no folds!)--a bargain! One might quibble with the choice of images, but it would be hard to choose 6 images from Curtis' vast catalog that everyone would agree on.
