About this title:

Synopsis: For millions of Americans, Solomon D. Butcher?s photographs epitomize the sod-house frontier. His late-nineteenth-century images from western Nebraska constitute the most extensive photographic record in existence of the generation that settled the Great Plains. The faces are unforgettable: jaunty bachelors and earnest husbands, Civil War veterans of both armies, spinster sodbusters and determined mothers, cowhands, farmhands, and former slaves?all in search of land of their own. Originally published in 1985, this first book devoted to Butcher and his photographs presents a unique visual chronicle of Great Plains settlement and established Butcher?s place in frontier photography. Everyone interested in the plains pioneers or historical American photography will prize this splendid book.

About the Author: John E. Carter is Curator of Photographs at the Nebraska State Historical Society, which holds the Butcher Photograph Collection. His introduction traces the variegated career of the Virginia-born photographer and assesses his achievements.
