new, in publisher's shrink-wrap. 314p., including index; The Pioneer Photographer is the story of William Henry Jackson’s love for the outdoors and of his adventurous life photographing the Rocky Mountain West during the late 1860s and 1870s. His meticulous descriptions of the rugged and treacherous landscapes, and the efforts required for capturing the images on glass plates, edify the reader about the enormous challenges presented by early photographic technology. Most of Jackson’s photographs made during the U.S. geological surveys, led by Dr. Ferdinand V. Hayden in the 1870s, document the anglo American "discovery" of the Rocky Mountain West. A facsimile reprint of the 1929 first edition, all pages are reproductions of the original--all typos and errors are reproduced here as they originally appeared. This is the eighth title in the Pikes Peak Library District's highly acclaimed history series.
