Week of January 3, 2011

North Dakota rancher, writer, poet and senior rodeo champion Rodney Nelson shared a photo taken on New Year's Day, 2011, near his home in Sims. Rodney describes it:

We are on Main Street. The building was the store. It went out of business when the railroad was rerouted in 1947.


photo by Joel Johnson

Pictured is Lafe (son) driving; Teri (wife) with Ingrid; me with Sven; Sara (Lafe's wife) with Ole; and Annika (daughter) and her husband Tyler, standing.

Rodney told us that the temperature was minus 8 F.

The Haflinger team, Waylon and Willie, were featured previously in Picture the West, here, in January, 2009.

Rodney Nelson writes about life in Sims in a regular column, "Up Sims Creek," found in the Country Living section of Farm and Ranch Guide.

Rodney has contributed other interesting photos to Picture the West:

Weeks of December 20 and 27, 2010


Some weeks ago, we featured a photo of Seth Bullock's Cowboy Brigade. The 1905 photo showed a group of "wild and wooly" cowboys, most from the Black Hills region, who were invited by their friend, President Theodore Roosevelt—"Teddy" to them—to take part in his inaugural parade. The group was organized by Captain Seth Bullock of Deadwood, South Dakota.

Richard and Deborah Wadsack of Cowboys & Images shared the above image of the cowboys. They, along with Carl Steiger and others, are actively searching for information about the cowboys of the Cowboy Brigade. (See our feature here for more and about how you can be involved.)

In response to that feature, Francie Ganje of the Heritage of the American West show told us that she lives in a house once owned by Jack Hale, one of the cowboys:

The description of the house in a commemorative calendar states:

Jack Hale was a bullwhacker, rancher, racing entrepreneur and a politician...and by a narrow squeak, almost the son-in-law of Lakota Chief Spotted Tail. He rode with Seth Bullock's Cowboy Brigade along with friends such as the silent western film star, Tom Mix. He is among the first inductees to the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center. He and his wife Anna (Kost) acquired the home in 1903.

Francie Ganje led us to a March, 1970 article about Jack Hale in Golden West magazine. In seeking a copy of that magazine, we contacted Larry J. Walker of Magazine House, and he led us to an article in the February, 1965 issue of Old West magazine, "When Bullock's Cowboys Hoorahed the Potomac," by South Dakota writer Joe Koller. That article included three additional photos of the Cowboy Brigade, shown below.

The article and photos are reproduced in our feature here with the kind permission of Bob Boze Bell, editor and publisher of the popular True West magazine from True West Publishing. True West Publishing acquired True West, Old West, and Frontier Times in 1999.

This photo was obviously taken the same time as the one above, but the cowboys are hatless. The captions for the following photos are from the Old West article.

Part of the Bullock Company saddled up to ride into the Capitol's business district to look the town over and to exercise their mounts. They were out for a little fun after four days on the train.

The Men of the West took a motor-bus tour of New York City after four days in Washington, D.C.
