Edward Curtis was charismatic, handsome, a passionate mountaineer, and a famous photographer, the Annie Leibovitz of his time. He was thirty-two years old in 1900 when he gave it all up to pursue his Great Idea: to capture on film the continent’s original inhabitants before the old ways disappeared.
From Pulitzer Prize winner Timothy Egan, a writer who transforms history “into the stuff of riveting page-turners,”* the cinematic story of the artist who risked everything to capture the glory of Native American life. (*Entertainment Weekly)
