Cover Art Description:
Maynard Dixon’s paintings reflect his fervent belief that the West’s landscapes fundamentally shaped the lives and behavior of its inhabitants. The region’s vast distances and rugged mountains entranced Dixon, and this issue’s cover illustration, Montana Sodbuster (1909, oil on canvas board, 11" x 14"), courtesy Mr. And Mrs. A. P. Hays, Arizona West Galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona, reflects his engagement with the West’s awe-inspiring natural presence.
