Men were created to explore. Due to this ambition, legends were born. Our great land, America, emerged from this desire to push the boundaries, explore the streams, climb the mountains and settle the unknown and uninhabited territories. All of this was made possible by the great American and Native American explorers working and fighting side by side. Native Americans thought our explorers the skills they needed to survive the wilderness. Our heroes such as Daniel Boone, Davey Crocket, and Lewis and Clark joined the members of the Algonquin, Mohican and Iroquois tribes to make America what it is today. This painting does not depict any one hero, but is a representation of the outdoor spirit of all of those men and women who had the fortitude to preserve, and thus, through their adventures, wove the myths and legends which still survive today. It represents outdoor spirit and depicts a journey across the waterways of the West to the Pacific Ocean.
