Gloss:
The high horizon and the shadowy, sheltering trees form an intimate setting for Farny's family group even within the vastness of the western landscape. With the title Days of Long Ago Farny wistfully places the scene in some distant, but not specific time. Farny's vision of the Indian rests in tranquility.
