Heart of the Circle is the first book devoted exclusively to Curtis's images of Native American women. Over 100 intimate and revealing portraits are included of women making pottery, tending infants in cradleboards, hauling wood, harvesting wild berries, grinding corn, stretching hides, and butchering game. The portraits are grouped by geographic region and accompanied by carefully researched, informative text."--GOOGLE Books.
