Bill Hampton’s Old Gold Tooth became Leanin’ Tree’s first birthday card after Ed Trumble commissioned Western poet S. Omar Barker to compose the following verse to accompany the image: “May neither drought nor rain nor blizzard/Disturb the joy-juice in your gizzard!/And may you camp where wind won’t hit you/Where snakes won’t bite and bears won’t git you/Happy Birthday” Hampton’s humorous and soulful portraits have graced Leanin’ Tree cards ever since.
This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin’ Tree on page 62
