By Robert J. Seidman
Moments Captured is the pleasing tale of 2 indelible contributors and a shattering homicide in latenineteenth-century San Francisco.
An epic saga of younger the US flexing its muscle, it really is approximately in response to the lifetime of the nice photographer Edward Muybridge. Crossing the rustic together with his digicam and oversized ambition, Muybridge meets the emancipated younger dancer Holly Hughes, and inexorably she turns into the real concentration of his lifestyles- although a corrupt robber baron drawn to Muybridge's expertise for know-how comes among them.
Through Seidman's finely drawn prose, we witness nation-building on a huge scale, in addition to the politics of wile, greed, and seduction. With an severe love affair at its heart and a true-to-life narrative of paintings and know-how, this novel brings to existence the most picaresque settings in American history.
