This painting is a landscape inspired by the country around Cascade, MT. Portraying a band of horse thieves returning with their catch. The headgear of the lead Indian in the painting is one of Russell’s favorite hats. It is on display in the log cabin studio at the CM Russell Museum. Russell used the headgear as a prop in many of his paintings.
