According to Harold McCracken, “It was difficult for Frank Tenney Johnson to leave Manuelita and the other parts of the Indian country of the southwestern desert region, just as it had been difficult to leave the cowboy and cattle back country of Colorado.

Frank Tenney Johnson and the American West will accompany the lot.
