More Details

Miller’s review of a photographic documentary of the American continent and its denizens by a pair of European travelers. Perhaps typically, Miller names neither the book nor its authors, and he speaks little about the actual contents, hewing instead to Miller country: the photographs are springboards for commentary upon the grandeur of the land, the willful ignorance of the American populace, the egregious mistreatment, marginalization, and misunderstanding of the Indian, the African American, and the “hillbilly and other so-called ‘backward’ people.”
