This volume is the story of Lee Moorhouse and his sojourn with the tribes living on the Umatilla Reservation early in the 20th century. He was a rarity, an Indian Agent who respected the culture and it shines through in these pictures. Steven Grafe's narrative history is written clearly and with a sharp eye for the telling details. Mr. Moorhouse's attitude was not shared by his white contemporaries and this ultimately cost him his position. Fortunately, his photographic hobby and artistic ability has left us a remarkable record of those few years. This is really an art book more than a history.
