On the Cover:
The photo of one of the 1887 officers quarters (ca. 1895) at Fort Robinson depicted on the front cover is from Ellen McGowan Biddle's Reminiscences of a Soldier's Wife (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co., 1907).
The Grant Reynard watercolor on the back cover portrays the second Red Cloud house in which Willa Cather's family lived. Charles Cather purchased it in 1903, thirteen years after Miss Cather had left Red Cloud. Reynard mistakenly believed this house to be the one in which Willa Cather grew up and intended to give his watercolor to her as a gift. Miss Cather died before he could present it, and the picture was later purchased by Dr. W. K. and Mildred Bennett of Red Cloud.
