By Steven E. Lillegard
Since Nelson Story drove the first cattle from texas to Montana in 1867, the image of the cowboy life has captured the imagination of people of all walks of life. The work was hard, the hours long and the pay was low, but The life style was so intrigueing that even some doctors and lawyers left their practices and headed west for a taste of cowboy life.
"Sundown on the Drive" depicts a cowboy as he would have looked during the heyday of cowboy culture in the late 1800's, including the authentic saddle and his "shotgun" style chaps.
The chaps that I used as a model are a personal treasure. They were owned by Nelson Story's nephew, W. D. Story, who managed part of the Story ranch. The chaps were given to me by the late Bob Story from Park City, MT., a grandson of W. D. Story.
