September 15, 2007
Spent the weekend studying Remington, both his art and his writing. Ran across this:

Did Apaches Attack At Night, Part II
"Near midnight they could hear the slumping of occassional guns. The colonel well knew the Apache fear of the demons of the night, who hide under the water and earth by day, but who stalk at dark, and are more to be feared than white men, by long odds. He knew that they did not go about except under stress, and he had good hope of getting into the beleaguered wagons without much difficulty."

—Frederic Sackrider Remington, A Desert Romance: A Tale of The Southwest,
