Grade 7 Up-An accessible biography of the well-known photojournalist. Bourke-White's many triumphs, from starting her own photography business to being one of the few women to capture conflicts and wars around the world with her camera lens, are all discussed in detail. Her personal life, including her marriage to author/collaborator Erskine Caldwell and her later struggle with Parkinson's disease, is also examined. A few of her best-known pictures, such as Gandhi with his spinning wheel, are on display, but there are too few for a biography of a photojournalist. Some pictures of her early family life add a personal touch. This book will appeal to students looking for research material and those simply interested in innovative people. Susan Goldman Rubin's Margaret Bourke-White: Her Pictures Were Her Life (Abrams, 1999) offers a better representation of the photographer's work.
