True West Best West 2018
The magazine’s Publisher Emeritus Robert G. McCubbin not only acquired an impressive array of Old West outlaw and lawman historical photographs, but also frontier photographs in general. This cowboy photograph of his documents a mid-1880s roundup on the VV Ranch. Bankrolled by Scottish whiskey merchant James Cree, the ranch introduced Angus cattle to the region surrounding Ruidoso, New Mexico Territory.
