"Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs is among the most important books ever devoted to the history of photography."--Jed Perl, The New Republic

"A monumental achievement in the pictorial historiography of 19th-century America, loaded with new images and data, this will be an indispensable resource for students of photography and U.S. history."--Library Journal

"A staunchly great book."--The Stranger

"An invaluable resource for anyone interested in U.S. photographic or landscape history."--Monteral Gazette

"A lavishly illustrated, meticulously edited, engagingly written, and comprehensively researched volume."--Choice

"The rare piece of scholarship that takes a known figure and substantially alters our understanding of him. The result . . . is a revelation: A strong argument that Watkins is more than a familiar photographer, he was the first great all-American artist."--Tyler Green, Modern Art Notes

"This extraordinary body of work produced by photographer Carleton Watkins . . . between 1858 and 1891 constitutes one of the longest and most productive careers in 19th century American photography."--Clickers & Flickers
