From Book News, Inc.
A collection of stunning photographs Hillers made during expeditions to southern Utah, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, the Pueblos of the Southwest, and Indian Territory--accompanied by text that places Hillers in the context of expeditionary photography. He had the opportunity to capture the "second opening" of the West as photographer for the Smithsonian Institution's Bureau of American Ethnology and for the US Geological Survey during the last 30 years of the 19th century, and he did so with dazzling artistry. This is a lot of book for the money. CIP reports a paper edition (unseen by and unannounced to Book News). The bibliography is extensive. Lacks an index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc.
