Natives of the far North Alaska's vanishing culture in the eye of Edward Sheriff Curtis by Shannon Lowry ( )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A collection not only of Curtis' romantic photographs of Aleutian Indians, but also of the folktales and stories Curtis gathered during the 30 years he chronicled Native Americans and their cultures. By today's standards of anthropology, Curtis' images are flawed in that they are more artistic than realistic, yet they are no less intriguing, especially in light of the fact that Curtis died penniless in pursuit of his vision. Lowry puts the numerous b&w portraits and village scenes into historical context, discussing modern research on the Aleutian peoples. Lacks an index
