The Cover

A watercolor depicting Coronado and his 30 men as they arrived in Quivira (present central Kansas) in 1541. The party was guided by an Indian called the Turk who describe Quivira as a land f gold. When the vision failed to materialize the disappointed Spaniards garrotted the guide.

The watercolor was painted by Byron B. Wolfe in July, 1968, and is reproduced here with his permission. Wolfe, who lives in Leawood, Kan., is a recognized painter of authentic Western Americana.
