In 1914, the Bugbee family moved to Clarendon, Texas, and began ranching. Harold Dow Bugbee attended the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, where he studied architectural drawing, followed by study at Cumming School of Art in Des Moines, Iowa. He began creating scenes that he knew very well- authentic images that capture the spirit of the American West of the early to mid-1900s, especially in and near his beloved Texas Panhandle. He became a well-known and highly sought illustrator for western pulp magazines and other publications. This book is a richly illustrated overview of the man and his art, and provides a valuable and entertaining resource for collectors and students of western and Texas art.
