This is a chronicle of a life in photography. Detailing the adventures of Dorthea Lange, the book raises questions about the uses and effectiveness of the medium and examines her images of anxious mothers and hungry infants and sullen men waiting in long city breadlines.

An ALA Booklist Editor’s Choice
* “A striking, humance portrait.... Diamond’s perceptive black-and-white drawings blend well with reproductions of Lange’s photographs.”
—Booklist, starred review
"Meltzer writes as accessibly to younger children as he does to advanced readers of his distinguished nonfiction. The story is outstanding,"
“Lange's work defines an era of destitution and drought, and still resonates even now. This is the perfect introduction to one of the world's greatest photojournalists.”
“Lange was the first woman to be awarded the Guggenheim Photography Fellowship and this book showcases her most famous work, an arresting 55-picture, chronologically ordered documentation of the lives of migrant workers during the Great Depression.”
"Meltzer has an intuitive eye for the illuminating image, event, moment. . . . He respects his readers, whatever their age."--The New York Times Book Review
