David Douglas Duncan is one of the veterans of twentieth-century camera reporting. Yankee Nomad is his own story - often violent, sometimes gentle, always action-filled - highlighted by more than 500 of his photographs, 130 of them in color. In this century, a new breed of nomad has been born, a new professional caste - the photo-journalist. A former Life magazine photographer, David Duncan has traveled the earth on assignments ranging from bizarre to dangerous; he has photographed many of the most powerful and unusual figures of our time, including Gandhi, Nehru, Eisenhower, Khrushchev, the legendary Ibn Saud, Maurice Chevalier and Picasso. Duncan's genius is to capture the one vignette that epitomizes a turn of history - or the character of his subject. Two of his earlier works, The Kremlin and Picasso's Picassos, were the first "art" books to appear on best-seller lists. The man behind the camera is an intrepid adventurer. The photographs in Yankee Nomad are at once an intensely personal record of an extraordinary existence and a perceptive commentary on the world of the mid-century decades of war and peace. Compiled over a period of thirty years, and containing nearly 100,000 words.
