About this title


Chronicling the history of attempts to record native American culture by combining skilled artistry with ethnographic detail, this photographic study examines the work of such turn-of-the-century photographers as Edward Curtis, Sumner W. Matteson, and Roland W. Reed.

From Library Journal:

Fleming and Luskey coauthored The North American Indians in Early Photography (HarperCollins, 1986), photographs of Native Americans taken during the period of the "four great surveys" from 1867 to 1879. Their new compilation is a closer look at the work of selected masters such as Edward Curtis and Sumner Matteson and of several lesser-known photographers like the Gerhard sisters--all of whom participated in the visual documentation of the "new" West. Although less comprehensive than the older text, Grand Endeavors contains many previously unpublished works reproduced in high-quality plates. The two offer a balanced yet haunting portrait of a tumultuous period in U.S. history and are an outstanding addition to all anthropology, history, and photography collections.
