Awe-inspiring. Mind-blowing. Stunning. Brave. I could keep going on and on.
Curtis spent 30 years in the field recording with camera and pen every significant aspect the life and culture of more than 80 Indian tribes west of the Mississippi. He was so keen on making photographs transcriptions for future generations that I look at this particular book 3 to 4 times a year. This book reveals his passion.
