Wagon wheels are made of wood and bound with iron; that is, the hub is bound with iron bands and the outer rim of the wheel is secured with a close-fitting iron tire. Early travelers in the West made a practice of removing their wagon wheels and soaking them in streams as a preventive measure against drying out and shrinking.

Four Comanche Indians have stopped by to witness this curious custom, as explained to them by the buckskin-clad wagon boss. He knows that there is no threat at the moment, but his companion is not so sure. Several broken treaties later there will be no more pleasantries and the wagons of the white invaders will roll on.




Tom Lovell
1909 - 1997 A Native American finding a Raggedy Ann doll on a lonely western road. A man teaching his blonde, gingham-dressed, settler wife how to shoot a rifle. A trio of Indians warming their hands over the chimney of a snow-buried cabin in an otherwise empty landscape. These are just three of the stories told through the art of Tom Lovell, considered by his peers one of the deans of Western art. But that’s not all. He was equally famous for his exciting and thought- provoking illustrations for such magazines as Life, The Saturday Evening Post and National Geographic—as well as his stirring images of sweeping Civil War battles which were considered so definitive that they were telecast as part of the famous Public Television documentary on the conflict and published in the accompanying best-selling book. Lovell was the first artist to win the National Academy of Western Art’s highest honor, the Prix de West, twice. He was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1974 and eventually named a Hall of Fame Laureate. In 1992, he was honored by both the National Academy of Western Art and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame with a Lifetime Achievement Award and a prestigious one-man retrospective show. He has left a lifetime of work that will influence, impress and instill emotion for years to come.
