This print captures the intense light near day's end. It focuses on the single figure of a pioneer caught shortly before the sun sets on a parched landscape. One can only imagine his dilemma as he stares toward the sun in hopes of finding proper shelter in unfamiliar land for himself and his team of horses before dark. Remington completed this painting in 1907 yet it was not depicted in Collier's until 1911 two years after he died. Collier's was so pleased with the original painting they not only offered individual prints to their readers but a year later included this image in a portfolio entitled "Remington's Four Best Paintings."
