Opinion

From Library Staff

Amazing story of a Northwest icon. We've all seen the images, but do we know anything about the photographer himself? I did not. My favorite book of 2012.

Timothy Egan weaves a good story about Edward Curtis' life and his significant contribution to native American history. The style allows the reader / listener to easily identify with Curtis' quest, the thrills of learning, the difficulties of the physical turmoil, and the pains of personal loss.

The audio book does contain a disk of images Curtis created which was a nice addition. The narrator's voice is strong and expressive. He also read Empire of the Summer Moon - a worthwhile yet darker read.
