Notes Russell's skill as a storyteller-in both word and picture-reached its apogee with the publication of his illustrated "Rawhide Rawlins" stories, which began appearing in Montana newspapers in 1916. These publications would provide lasting insight into Russell's very western sense of humor. This drawing of a cowboy on horse catapulted into the air by an erupting geyser is from those illustrated stories.
