The Life of Native American Photographer Edward Curtis

Edward Curtis was a successful photographer, the Annie Leibovitz of his time. But in 1900, at 32 years of age, he gave it all up to pursue his great idea: to capture on film the continent's original inhabitants before the old ways disappeared. Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Timothy Egan joined us to share stories from his new book, Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher. It tells the riveting, cinematic story behind the most famous photographs in Native American history — and the driven, brilliant man who made them.
