Format: Hardcover
This quality book will be a delight for a wide variety of purchasers, whether their interests lie in biography, history, photography, or Idaho Indians. It will serve as a sourcebook for scholarly research because of its very complete set of endnotes, bibliography, and index. Finally, the careful printing on glossy paper of its many high-resolution photographs makes it an art book of the first order. Awards: The book has been designated Idaho Book of the Year 2006 by the Idaho Library Association, has won a Smithsonian Institution Secretary's Research Prize for 2008, and has won the 2008 Collier Award from The Society for Visual Anthropology.

Format: Hardcover
A Danish Photographer Of Idaho Indians is a treasury of photographs rescued from history. The pictures taken by Benedicte Wrensted, a Danish immigrant, came from the photography studio that she opened and worked in from 1895 to 1912. Both white and Native American residents of the area came to her, especially members of the Northern Shoshone, Lemhi, and Bannock ("Sho-Ban") tribes; some Native clients chose to wear traditional Native clothing while others preferred Western-style suits or dresses, yet Wrensted always let the choice to be theirs. Many of the Native photographs were later appropriated by books which stripped the names of the subjects. A Danish Photographer Of Idaho Indians restores names to the photographs, and features an extensive discussion of who the photographer and the subjects were, as well as varying Native attitudes toward being photographed. The wealth of quality black-and-white images as well as the thoughtful and objective analysis make A Danish Photographer Of Idaho Indians a "must" for Native American Studies shelves.

Benedicte Wrensted is my great great aunt, her story has always been part of my family and this book is a beautiful way to remember all the stories shared by my family. Ms. Scherer provides some great resources and the photo quality is great, wonderful for the history buff. Friends always pick this book up off my coffee table to look at it.
