“An inside look at the life of Schuyler”—Southwest Art

“[This] brief but handsome tribute to the artist and his work . . . includes a short biography of Schuyler, the contents of some of his letters home from South Dakota in 1903, and a sampling of his literary production. . . . Examples of Schuyler’s art, ranging from energetic and spontaneous on-the-spot sketches to stylized and sometimes heavy-handed compositions destined for publication, are interspersed throughout.”—Montana, the Magazine of Western History

Remington Schuyler’s West informs, delights, and takes us back to the Old West as we fondly remember it.”—News Review (Ridgecrest, California)

Remington Schuyler’s West is an excellent contribution to the state’s history.”—James D. McLaird, professor emeritus, Dakota Wesleyan University

Remington Schuyler’s stories and illustrations of the American West were printed in hundreds of magazines throughout the 1920s and 1930s. A student of Howard Pyle and a contemporary of N. C. Wyeth, Schuyler influenced the American public’s image of cowboys and Indians.

As a young man, Schuyler grew restless and left college for South Dakota’s Rosebud Indian Reservation in 1903. His brief experiences as a ranch hand on the E-Bar Ranch and as a clerk at a trading post provided inspiration for his art and stories for the remainder of his life. During his long career, Schuyler shared his visions of the West with the readers of popular magazines as well as with generations of Boy Scouts. His compositions and art frequently decorated the cover of Boy’s Life and Scouting. Inside, his “Old Timer” column reflected the lessons learned in his days on the Rosebud.
