On the cover: The Cattleman features a painting by Clark Kelley Price titled “Guts and Glory”, another in our series from Cowboy Artists of America. Price says, “I have always enjoyed rodeo. I grew up in Idaho where it was popular and this painting is more or less a tribute to rodeo; the gutsy participants, and also our freedom and our wonderful country, the United States of America.”
