Great framing with colorful spines and thank you for the introduction to Edward!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Steven! And you're welcome! I have a couple books about him, and out west, here, he's quite well known.
Oh well done Ms Buckalew....
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Mr. Croston!
Un beau visage avec un air très fier.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Isn't it just!!

In which case he must have done them some good
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I believe he did.
Oh my, Elizabeth. Thanks for the link to this stalwart of a much-needed friend!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You're very welcome, Ginnie!

Is this your bookshelf, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm afraid not - although I do have a few of those books! This was a shelf at a second hand book store.

I should know more about him.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He led a fascinating life, Philine - a good man.

This is well done, Elizabeth. He was quite the man and I think it is mind-blowing what he did, seen in the time-frame he did it. I hope this is your library.....
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Astrid! Yes, he was a very good man, and unusual for his time.
Unfortunately no... although I do have a few of those books! This was a shelf at a second hand book store in downtown Flagstaff.
Heureusement qu'il y avait ce genre de personnes pour les aider !
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - we need more like him! I hope you're staying cool, Claudine - your record high temperatures are making news here!
Totally unknown to me but looking at a sample of the pictures they are wonderful. Sad that he clearly was forgotten for so long
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I've got a few books about him - one I've had for quite some time. It is very sad... but not surprising.

Oh, it is Mister and Ms now and this only a few days after he is back...

I took a quick look through Curtis' picture collections. From them I got to realise that the 'Indians' in reality looked different from the movies.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - we've come up for air! smile

I don't think they were portrayed very well in movies...
Going by what can be seen on the website this book must be fascinating.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I wish now, that I'd purchased it... but I do have others about Curtis.
They can use all the friends they can get!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Absolutely!

Thank you for the link - he sounds a fascinating man, his pictures are amazing.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He was definitely a good man - we need more like him!
I love the positive post, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Beverly!
What a nostalgic feel this has.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ruthie - we need more men like Curtis.
i'm sure that Edward Curtis had done justice to the First Nations Elizabeth... i went to the link that you had posted... it's an amazing collection of photos taken so long ago....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: He did, indeed, Peter. We need more men like him.
I was looking through those titles to see if I recognise any........interesting reads, I'm sure! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed - I have a few... but these were on a shelf in a second hand book store.
