Originally used to illustrate a 20-volume encyclopedia of Native American history and culture, these photographs from the first decades of the 20th century are a valuable document of history. From a striking 1905 portrait of Geronimo to the seal-hunting Eskimos of Nunivak Island, Edward S. Curtis's pictures reflect the diversity of cultures that existed among the various Indian tribes. Their quality is superb--Curtis used the then-state-of-the-art photogravure process to reproduce his images--and the 1906 critique from Theodore Roosevelt remains valid: "In Mr. Curtis we have both an artist and a trained observer ... whose work has far more than mere accuracy, because it is truthful." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have not seen the hardcover but I believe, from reading the reviews here, that it actually has the complete photos from Curtis's opus, apparently reproduced well but in small size and little or no text. Amazon should NOT combine reviews for the hardcover and paperback books because they are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PUBLICATIONS in every way!
I can't speak to the paperback version but the hardcover version is not worth near the money Amazon is charging. What a shame.
