These indelible portraits of Native Americans by Edward S. Curtis, made at the dawn of the 20th century, have become among the most avidly collected, published, and sought-after emblems of early encounters with American-Indian life. There is no more comprehensive record from the period of the diverse Native peoples.
EDWARD S. CURTIS: CHIEFS AND BRAVES is drawn from the collection of Christopher Cardozo and features iconic Curtis pictures as well as several little-known gems. Many have never been published as large-format folio prints. Pulitzer Prize-winning author N. Scott Momaday, one of the most successful contemporary Native American literary figures, writes the Foreword.About the Author:
