The Helping Hand
by John Buxton

“It’s pretty common to see things written about the conflicts between the Native Americans and the settlers,” says John Buxton, “but friendships must have developed as well. Living on the frontier, they had to get along and trust one another in order to survive.”

Winter Windfall
by John Buxton

Winner of the Patron’s Choice Award at the 2009 Quest for the West show at The Eitleljorg Museum in Indianapolis, "Winter Windfall" is a stunning winter landscape from John Buxton. A broken and abandoned hay cart and its precious cargo of supplies is discovered by these woodland Indians. The hay cart is not designed for hauling supplies much less a trip down a backwoods stream. What caused the settlers to decide to make such an ill-prepared winter’s journey down such an arduous path? Such questions certainly entered these warriors’ minds, but taking stock of the bounty they have come across on this fine winter’s morning is the first order of business.

The Agile Bark Canoe
by John Buxton

The Native People of the Eastern Woodlands built two types of canoes: dug-outs, fashioned from tree trunks, and more lightweight canoes made of bark, preferably birch since it was easier to form. The men in "The Agile Bark Canoe" are in hunting canoes of a style attributed to the Passamaquoddy¯but perhaps these Indians traded for them, as was done frequently. They were as light as an autumn leaf upon water, with the ability to navigate rivers, shallow streams, marshes and moderate rapids. Being extremely light enabled easy portage between waterways and yet they were capable of carrying heavy loads. A canoe this size (12 feet long by 30 inches wide at its center) could be lifted with one hand and was very stable when fully loaded. The bark canoe was fast and infinitely more versatile than any small craft of the European settlers.

Blacksmith of Venango, 1752
by John Buxton

This is a portrait of John Frazier who, with a few other English traders on the upper Allegheny river in 1752, were visited by friendly local natives that appreciated his skill at metal repair. By mid-1753 the French had taken his cabin in Venango and he fled to Turtle Creek near the Monongahela River. His cabin there was visited by young George Washington in 1753 and 1754.
