A beautiful, hardcover, coffee-table photo book from Rio Nuevo Publishers.
Between 1900 and 1927, Edward Curtis visited eighty tribes across North America and took more than 40,000 photographs, recorded songs and stories, and interviewed tribal leaders.
In a perfect partnership, the songs, prayers, and philosophies of eight western American Indian tribes are paired with beautiful historical photographs taken by the incomparable Edward S. Curtis.
This carefully curated book is an inspirational journey of respect for the cultures and ideals of western American Indian tribes. From father to son, mother to daughter, and grandparents to grandchildren, ancient stories and lessons are handed down through generations.
The beautiful words that accompany each photograph are the prayers, songs, and wisdom of the American Indians who lived in harmony with their environment and gave homage to the Great Spirit.
Newly published by the Tucson based Rio Nuevo Publishers / Treasure Chest Books, Stand In The Light has 184 pages and is 7.5-inches (19.05 cm) long by 6.25-inches (15.875 cm) wide.
