Publisher's Summary

A brilliant, complex, and layered story, The Shadow Catcher takes its title from the name bestowed upon Edward Curtis by the American Indians when he showed them photographs of themselves.

In this remarkable novel, Wiggins weaves parallel tales of this famous artist and an unsung soldier, husband, and father. With its vast Western landscape and Wiggins' mesmerizing first-person narration, The Shadow Catcher calls to mind the best of the exploring, voyaging writers: Twain, Melville, Hemingway, and Steinbeck.

Critic Reviews

"There are passages in Marianne Wiggins's eighth novel so piercingly beautiful that I put the book down, shook my head and simply said, 'Wow.'" (The Washington Post)
"Fictive memoir? Fact-based novel? I don¿t care what she calls this book. I'll gladly read it again." (The New York Times)
