Description

A young man wearing breeches and a wide-brimmed hat has sat down at the foot of a tree to have something to eat, of which he gives a morsel to his dog while his rifle rests at the crook of his arm.

Given Boughton’s Hudson River School early influence, it feels like the publisher’s choice to have him illustrate a story taking place in the Catskill Mountains was a discerning touch.
