The definitive biography on the life and work of Carl and Grace Moon, accomplished photographers, artists, authors and poets exemplifying the Native American Indian. Studying photography right out of high school, in 1903 Carl Moon moved to the Southwest, where he began to paint and photograph Native Americans in New Mexico. His striking portraits soon began to attract national attention, and President Theodore Roosevelt even invited him to the White House to discuss his subjects. In 1907 Moon moved to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, where he photographed for the Fred Harvey company. Seven years later Moon and his wife Grace moved to Pasadena, California.
