Here's a poem written by Richard Hart: When the West was wild not every mother's child Could stomach this violent existence; Some did come through, a rugged few Who survived by their persistence.

In recognition of the 400th anniversary of the meeting of European and Native American peoples, a new exhibition at The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens will look at how North American Indians have been depicted in art, primarily from the 1500s through the 1800s. The exhibition, "Legacy and Legend: Images of Indians from Four Centuries," runs from June 9 to Sept. 2, in the MaryLou and George Boone Gallery. "For centuries European-trained artists created art for audiences that knew little about Indians, and so their images often romanticized them and focused on the more dramatic," says guest curator Kathryn Hight.
