The grizzly roamed the West almost as extensively as the buffalo, and he ate everything from violets to man. Musket balls just seemed to make him madder. He was always mad. So once the fight had been joined, there was no turning back. This bear, so formidable on four feet, could also stand on two and prove to be almost invincible. At eight to ten feet tall, with awesome shoulder power, he could cave in the ribs of a man with one sweeping swipe.
The Crow Indian is caught alone with nothing but a hatchet. His hunting shirt is being ripped off his back, but he's got one good, solid swing coming. I haven't yet figured out the outcome.
About Fritz White
Fritz White was born January 14, 1930 in Milford, Ohio near Cincinnati. Fritz White passed away in April, 2010. The Little Miami River, which borders Cincinnati on the east, was a main thoroughfare north and south for the Shawnee tribes that were settled throughout Ohio.
Artifacts of the Shawnees, Miamis, Mingos and even mound builders were common to the area. From these artifacts, his interest in the Native American and their mythology was kindled. "As a kid, I used to think that when I followed a path along the river that the Shawnee had been there only moments ago, that Boone, and Kenton, and maybe the young surveyor G, Washington came this way." Perhaps my need to do the west came from all the stories I had heard and read growing up. My interest and feeling has grown dramatically with research into the day-to-day lives of those builders of America. The thrill comes from exploring one small facet of western life after another.
Fritz shares his talents with others, teaching numerous educational sessions with young artists and conducting sculpture classes for the visually impaired.
In addition to being a member of the Cowboy Artists of America, White is a member of the National Sculpture Society.
