In this biography about Edward Curtis, Egan reallybrings out the drive Curtis had to record for posteritythe customs, family life and traditions of NativeAmericans before it all disappeared.  I think we allhave seen one of Edward's photos at one time oranother; they are moving & unforgettable. Curtissacrificed his own family & health for his vision & weare all fortunate that he did.  A great read.  -Patty
