Called “Mistakis” –the “Backbone of the World” by the Blackfeet people–Glacier’s landscape has inspired many artists to create beautiful works.In The Call of the Mountains some of America’s most outstanding artists have captured in print, paint, photography, and sculpture the beauty of Glacier’s land, animals, and native peoples. Whether you know the region well or are discovering its charms for the first time, you will enjoy this celebration of the art of Glacier. This collection focuses on works before 1930 and features well-known artists, including Edward Curtis, Maynard Dixon, Charles M. Russell, James Willard Schultz, and Joseph H. Sharp.
This is the first time the artists of Glacier country have been assembled in a single book. The 250 images from private and public collections offer art lovers and outdoor enthusiasts a fittingly magnificent view of Glacier National Park.
