A book of superb b&w photographs, most taken in 1904 during the St. Louis World's Fair, showing some of the 2,000 native peoples brought to St. Louis to appear in the most extensive anthropological exhibit ever assembled for a world's fair. The text examines the relationship of the photographers with the images, and the images with the viewers and the society in which they were viewed. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
