Excellent documentary
6 September 2000 | by (Auckland, NZ) – See all my reviews

On the life and times of Edward Curtis. Ed's project spanned decades and combined painstaking research with total dedication to the task at hand. Looking at his photo's reveals life as it was in the early part of the century for many forgotten ways and times.
