 THE AMBUSH   

Print (The Ambush) 


Print on Canvas (The Ambush) 


 
- by Charles M. Russell (1896)
Russell was fascinated with a gang of Black Hills hold-up men, active in the late 1870's, led by "Big Nose George" Parrot who was later arrested and hanged by vigilantes only a year after Russell arrived in Montana an impressionable youth of 16. Although their activities frequently included violence and cold-blooded murder, Russell often made the bandits appear more comic than threatening. Realism simply lost out to his conviction that everything was better in the old days.
