Women & Warriors of the Plains
Synopses & Reviews

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.
