Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Julia Tuell lived among the Cheyenne and Sioux from 1906 to 1929. Understanding that all facets of Plains Indian culture were precious and endangered, she photographed both the mundane and the magnificent, from women preparing a meal to the chiseled faces of tribal elders.

Book News Annotation:

Offers an account of the life of Julia Tuell, whose sensitive and important photographs of the Plains Indians, taken in the beginning years of the 20th century, reflect both sacred religious ceremonies and the daily grind of survival. The author places Tuell's photographs in historical and cultural context, providing insight into traditional cultures. Abundantly illustrated to showcase Tuell's work, primarily in b&w.
