Joe De Yong, A Life in the West

By William Reynolds

336 pages with over 500 illustrations, letters and notes

Joe De Yong, born in 1894, had one dream, to be a cowboy. Stricken with “cerebro meningitis” at the age of 19, leaving him totally deaf; this is a grand and important story about the life of a little-known illustrator and artist that would forever change the way the country and the world perceives the power and romance of pre-1900 American West. His works are perhaps the most widely seen of all Western American artists but very few know who he was. This is a compelling journey through the life of a diminutive man who overcame overwhelming physical adversities to create and ensure the authenticity of who the American cowboy and American West was would live on forever.
