Synopsis

The work of Edward Curtis captures forever the images, myths, and histories of a vanishing age. The Image Taker features essential selections of photographs and the seldom- seen tribal stories recorded and preserved by Curtis in his 20-volume masterpiece, The North American Indian, offering the reader a bridge through time to the last generation of Indians from the Buffalo Days of pre-reservation life.
 

About Gerald Hausman

See more books from this Author
Gerald Hausman calls himself a "native of the world" after living in so many places in the United States and the West Indies. He spent more than twenty years in New Mexico where many of his American Indian folktales were collected and published. Born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1945, Hausman has been a storyteller almost since birth. His more than 70 books attest to his love of folklore, a passion instilled by his mother who painted the portraits of Native American chiefs. During his thirty-five years as a storyteller, Gerald has entertained children of all ages at such places as The Kennedy Center, Harvard University, St John's College and in schools from one end of the country to the other. Five audio books have come out in recent years and two of Gerald's books have been made into animated and folkloric films. His books have also been translated into a dozen foreign languages.
