During the final decade of his century-long life, pioneer photographer William Henry Jackson became a living symbol of the Old West. Remarkably active well into his nineties, Jackson painted scenes of the Oregon Trail and traded stories with other old-timers who met regularly at the Explorers Club and the Adventurers' Club in New York City. One of this closest friends and admirers, a young man named Elwood P Bonney, kept a journal of Jackson's thoughts, recollections, and accomplishments during those years. Based on Bonney's journal, "William Henry Jackson: An Intimate Portrait" is an engaging personal look at a man whose life and work spanned the development and transformation of the West, from the 1860s to World War II. Edited, annotated, and with an introduction by Lloyd W Gundy, this first-hand biographical portrait includes full-colour images of Jackson's paintings of major western explorations and black-and-white illustrations of the distinguished photographer's last years.
