Additional description 
  
This book reviews the early history of photography in the United States, many of the important photographers who recorded life on the frontier, and how their vision and artistry shaped public opinion about the West. From Edward S. Curtis and William Henry Jackson to the more obscure, these men documented what they saw for a variety of purposes: scientific, commercial, ethnological and artistic. As this book shows, all study of the westward movement is in part a study of photography.  
  
Chapters include: Picturing the West; The First Wave; Imagining America; War Photographers and Western Journeys; Photographers of the Local Scene; The Many Faces of the American Indian; The Indian Photography of Edward S. Curtis; and The Last of the Great Frontier Photographers. Illustrated with over 20 beautiful and significant historic photographs.
