Justin H. Howard was an experienced illustrator who produced illustrations for dozens of McLoughlin Brothers titles.  This images of Native Americans on the move is a poignant reminder for readers that western expansion displaced women and children.  The text reads: “And driven away by the white man’s axe / From the early haunts of his race / The Indian packs his tents and makes tracks / For a suitable dwelling place….This is the game of hide and seek / That white men and red men play / On the prairies wide, where on every side / They fight for the right of way.”
