Shadows on Glass documents the closing days of the Southwest Frontier, a time of irrevocable change for the Indian peoples that Wittick visited: Hualapai and Haraupai; Mohave and Yuma; Apache; Navajo; Pueblos of Acoma, Languan, and Isleta; Zuni; and Hopi. Wittick's photographs, divided into field studies and posed portraits capture the historical, culture, and psychological realities of this transitional era. Although the field studies focus on daily life in the Indian world, the portraits offer greater insight into fundamental truths of Indian life in the Southwest.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...a good choice for readers interested in historic photography, the Southwest or Indian culture....visually beautiful... * The Tulsa Tribune *
Broder's blunt commentary places the photographs in context, making this an important addition to native American collections. * Booklist *
Broder raises this book above the level of a coffee-table collection of 200 photographs to a scholarly examination of the man and his work....The quality of reproductions in this book is excellent, as is Broder's text. * CHOICE *
