Description
Prayer to the Great Mystery is a historic publishing event, a remarkable coup that presents 93 newly discovered photographs--along with 150 others--taken by Edward S. Curtis. Deeply human and symphathetic, these images embody Curtis's attempt to preserve the character is Native American Cultural life before its erosion by the nineteenth-century flood of American expansion. Accompanying the photographs is a poignant series of myths, abridged from Curtis's ethnographic writings. Prayers to the Great Mystery is a stunning account of a vanished era, and a seminal book for understanding our rich Native American legacy.
