Dorothea Lange A Life Beyond Limits by Linda Gordon is a 536-page softcover published in 2009 by W.W. Norton & Company. The book is in good original condition. There is an old sticker on the back cover.
We all know Dorothea Lange's iconic photos--the migrant mother holding her child, the shoeless children of the Dust Bowl--but now renowned American historian Linda Gordon brings them to three-dimensional life in this groundbreaking exploration of Lang's transformation into a documentarist. Using Lange's life to anchor a moving social history of 20th century America, Gordon masterfully recreates bohemian San Francisco, the Depression, and the Japanese-American internment camps. Accompanied by over 100 images, Gordon's sparkling, fast-moving story testifies to her status as one of the most gifted historians of her time.
