George S. Cook was a photographer in the civil war, and this book yields insights into his life, and his photography. "He was one of the few who exercised his craft in the face of histile fire. Initially his daring was highly publicized, but, in later years historians were oblivious to much of his work."

"Text in this fascinating work is comprehensive and thoroughly researched, yet flows with a graceful, highly readable style. Representative photos demonstrate Cook's mastery of his craft. Cook's diary is an intriguing primary document. Recipes included. Readers of diverse interest should make this book a welcomed edition to their library. -- The Civil War Courier"
