Description
From the publisher. Winner of the 2010 Bancroft Prize and finalist for the 2009 Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Biography. The definitive biography of a heroic chronicler of America's Depression and one of the twentieth century's greatest photographers. We all know Dorothea Lange's iconic photos -- the Migrant Mother holding her child, the shoeless children of the Dust Bowl -- but now renowned American historian Linda Gordon brings them to three-dimensional life in this groundbreaking exploration of Lange's transformation into a documentarist. Using Lange's life to anchor a moving social history of twentieth-century America, Gordon masterfully recreates bohemian San Francisco, the Depression, and the Japanese-American internment camps. Accompanied by more than one hundred images -- many of them previously unseen and some formerly suppressed -- Gordon has written a sparkling, fast-moving story that testifies to her status as one of the most gifted historians of our time. Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize; a New York Times Notable Book; New Yorker's A Year's Reading; and San Francisco Chronicle Best Book.
