Apache Gold and Yaqui Silver
Another man came unexpectedly to the studio one day in the Hill Building. My father brought him and introduced him. His name was Frank Dobie. I felt honored that he had come. I had pored over, not merely read, three of his books; I told him that some of the pages he had written seemed to me the very voice of the land I was trying to paint. . . . Sarah and I were married in the summer of 1938 and our first home was a furnished apartment we rented on North Stanton Street. The apartments back room had wide windows giving plenty of light. . . . Working on a drawing board by those windows I made the pen and ink drawings, the color paintings and the jacket design for Apache Gold and Yaqui Silver.
