The cover painting, July 4th Parade, Red Cloud, Nebraska, 1918, is by John Blake Bergers. A native of the Nebraska plains born during the Dust Bowl days of the 1930s, Bergers feels strong kinship with rural America. He has done more than forty paintings depicting scenes from Cather's novels for the Willa Cather Pioneer Memorial and Education Foundation. And some of his other paintings, such as July 4th Parade, owned by Harry Obitz of Red Cloud, are set in Cather's home town of Red Cloud. Bergers now lives in the artist community of Lindsborg, Kansas.

The cover painting was done by Gordon Rettew in 1944, while he was stationed at Fort Robinson. It depicts Dakota, a powerful, dappled-brown gelding, seventeen hands high, famous internationally as one of the three greatest jumpers in the world. In 1936, the U.S. Olympic Equestrian Team, which had trained at the Fort Robinson Remount Depot, competed at Berlin. In one phase of the competition, Dakota tied for first place, then for fourth place in the runoff.
