Notes This is part of a set of 21 woodblock prints collectively entitled The History of Montana in Woodcut. These were done as a thesis for a degree in applied arts at Montana State College, Bozeman, 1935. Marjory Geiseker Goering created them to illustrate how early pioneers viewed the world and how events would have looked back then.

Two men in fringed buckskin jackets stand on a flat ledge with a shear drop-off on the left edge. Each man is propping up a gun, the butt of which rests on the ground, in front of him. River and mountains in background.
