A hard day's work ends 'round the chuckwagon
In 1904, artist N.C. Wyeth lived a western adventure in Colorado when he worked alongside real cowboys on a round-up. These works came out of that trip: from first learning to stay atop a bucking horse, to roping and driving cattle, to the greatly-appreciated evening meal prepared by "cookie" at the chuckwagon. Wyeth published a story and illustrations made from these paintings in 1906.
