5.0 out of 5 stars Edward S. Curtis: The Women, March 25, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Edward S. Curtis: The Women (Hardcover)
Excellent prints from Edward Curtis' collection of prints. The introduction - narrative is very informative. It explains the background information of several prints, who the people were, why some are wearing their wedding costumes grinding corn, etc. The size is ok to share with classes. To have a collection of the prints of women especially doing some of their tasks is very valuable.

This review is from: Edward S. Curtis: The Women (Hardcover)
Edward S. Curtis's work is so impressive that I don't feel I can adequately describe how striking some of these photos are. It is worthy of a public place for all who have an interest in Native American images to enjoy. Purchased as a gift for someone who is "hard to please" and they were delighted with it. It arrived promptly, and in excellent condition, very pleased with purchase and would buy from vendor again.

I like Edward Curtis a lot. This is a great book to give to a lady friend.
The price is very reasonable. It is a great view into our nations past.
It might be controversial for native americans. All in all a great book.

This is the best of the four Curtis photo books I have. The size of the book and the sensitivity of the photos surpass the others.

This review is from: Edward S. Curtis: The Women (Hardcover)
This is a large book of mostly photos of Indian Women in Early America. A true gem. We should be so thankful for Edward S Curtis who did the photography to preserve this history. He had a strong sense of urgency that it was "get these photos now or never". Curtis paid a great price to do so.

This review is from: Edward S. Curtis: The Women (Hardcover)
Most the of the book contains hauntingly lovely...very human pictures of people whose lives has been or are about to be destroyed. Read Edward S. Curtis' biography and enjoy the pictures more thoroughly.

an excellent collection of Curtis' work of female subjects. Curtis himself is a very interesting subject in the history of the American West - read Egan's Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher

The laborious and compassionate humanity of women in these photos is evident. The thoughtful captions are memorable. I page through it when I need encouragement. This presentation is excellent.
