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.

    " This book has a lot in it - and I can understand how a lot of people feel that it doesn't "hang together." But, for me, it kept getting better and better. Everyone who reads it has a different favorite storyline - what amazed me so much is that the same author could write in all of those styles. There is some straightforward narrative and some jaw-dropping paragraphs where I just wanted to spend time thinking about something she had just articulated so well. I also really enjoyed the recurring themes of fathers leaving and then reuniting with their family in some way, of "lighting out" for the territory - running from/going to somewhere...it was also really interesting to read this so soon after reading Loving Frank. "
