author2-role , "Edward Curtis was dashing, charismatic, a passionate mountaineer, a famous photographer--the Annie Liebowitz of his time. And he was thirty-two years old in 1900 when he gave it all up to pursue his great idea: He would try to capture on film the Native American nation before it disappeared. At once an incredible adventure narrative and a penetrating biographical portrait, Egan's book tells the remarkable untold story behind Curtis's iconic photographs, following him throughout Indian country from desert to rainforest as he struggled to document the stories and rituals of more than eighty tribes. Even with the backing of Theodore Roosevelt and J.P. Morgan, it took tremendous perseverance--six years alone to convince the Hopi to allow him into their Snake Dance ceremony. The undertaking changed him profoundly, from detached observer to outraged advocate. He would die penniless and unknown in Hollywood just a few years after publishing the last of his twenty volumes. But the charming rogue with the grade-school education had fulfilled his promise--his great adventure succeeded in creating one of America's most stunning cultural achievements."--Provided by publisher., (2)aan(2)can(2)han(2)oan(2)ganpan(2)san(3)wan10-09-12ma3, (OCoLC)666239978, -1- -04-30-2016 9:50, -1- -05-09-2016 13:25, -1- -06-20-2016 14:17, -1- -07-12-2017 14:04, -1- -12-04-2017 19:32, -1- -12-08-2016 11:08, -1- -12-11-2017 11:27, .b1396512812-05-1709-13-12, .b1494889801-22-1606-11-15, 0618969020 (hardback), 1 online resource (1 audio file (11hr., 56 min.)) :digital., 10023971Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 1611209498 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 2012022390, 370 p. :ill. ;24 cm., 770.92, 9780618969029 (hardback), 9781611209495 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), B CURTIS E, Boston :Houghton Mifflin Harcourt,c2012., Curtis, Edward S.,1868-1952., DLCengDLCYDXBTCTABDXYDXCPOCLCOIQ2BWX, Digital content provided by hoopla., Documentary photography, Downloadable audiobook., Drummond, David(Narrator)|Narrator, Egan's book tells the remarkable untold story behind Edward Curtis's iconic photographs, as he struggled to document the stories and rituals of more than eighty tribes.
