Last Rides of Cowboys, Indians, Generals, and Chiefs: An exhibit of 19th century Western photography
with local author Paul Jensen
Exhibit, reception and presentation on Thursday, May 25th
6 - 8 pm
The Lovatt Room

Local author Paul Jensen will host a presentation of 30 historic photos by David Francis Barry, John C.H. Graybill, and L.A. Huffman that are featured in his new book titled Last Rides of Cowboys, Indians, Generals, and Chiefs. It tells the stories (by first person narrative and photos) of the dissolution of the once proud and free Plains Indians, the life and death of George Armstrong Custer, the emergence of the cowboy as the new American hero, the end of the American frontier, and the beginning of the New West. Jensen will also provide a historical context for most of the photos and there will be a reception prior to the discussion.

Paul Jensen traded in a thirty-year career in Washington, DC politics and business for cowboy life near Daniel. He is currently the Executive Director of Rendezvous Pointe and is the author of three local history books Hard and Noble Lives: A Living Tradition of Cowboys and Ranchers in Wyoming's Hoback Basin, The State of Equality In the Equality State: Saving the Best of the West in Wyoming, and All in a Day's Ride: Life Along Horse Creek in the Wyoming Range: An Enduring Legacy. Copies of Last Rides of Cowboys, Indians, Generals, and Chiefs are not available yet as it is due to be released later this year. The exhibit is currently on display at the library. This exhibit and event is presented in collaboration with the Wyoming Humanities Council. Don't miss this opportunity to gain insight on Western American history.
