Morgan Monceaux (au & il); Ruth Katcher (au). This beautiful childrenís book is the culmination of an artistís lifelong fascination with the West. It grew when he discovered the role African Americans had in settling the West, as fur traders, stagecoach drivers, cowboys, soldiers, nurses, & mail-order brides. And when he learned that his own great-grandmother was the daughter of a Creek Indian chief, he looked at the West & its people of color with a new awareness. These portraits, executed in oil pastels, paint, markers, & collage, with accompanying biographical sketches & historical notes, are some of the men & women whose names have come down to us through legend & history. Taken together, they give us an extraordinary portrait of the West & an appreciation of the human need to be free.
