In Crow Indian Photographer Peggy Albright deftly combines biographical detail with an overview of Richard Throssel's photographic legacy. In addition to his Crow photographs, Throssel photographed Northern Cheyenne ceremonies that were prohibited by government regulation, including the Northern Cheyenne Massaum (Animal Dance). He photographed this sacred ceremony in 1909, the first year it was offered after the Battle of the Little Bighorn more than thirty years earlier. As an employee of the U.S. Indian Service, Throssel also produced a series of images for use in national education programs aimed at improving Indian health.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Albright successfully conveys a sense of a man and a people swimming hard to stay afloat among the tides of history. . . . The Humanity displayed here is powerful."
"This serious, yet engaging book offers room for rumination on the anthropological currents that seethe and swirl just under the glass-plate surface."
." . . this beautiful book is an important addition to the literature and a must-read not only for students of Indian photography but for anyone interested in the difficult early days of reservation life for Native American people."
