Frank Schoonover is one of the great American illustrators of the Brandywine School who studied under Howard Pyle. Next to N. C. Wyeth, he was probably the most successful of Pyle’s students and the most widely reproduced in periodicals and books. Schoonover is best remembered for western and sporting scenes, but he was also adept at capturing key moments in adventure stories of all genres. James Willard Schultz lived in Arizona and Montana, where he married a Blackfoot woman, was accepted into the nation and settled in what is now Glacier National Park. He wrote many books and tales of life about the American West and was also an explorer and archaeologist. Schoonover and Schultz often teamed up as author and artist.
