Born in Bavaria, the tales of Buffalo Bill that made their way across the ocean entranced young Nick Eggenhofer. So thoroughly did he pursue his passion that when he emigrated to the United States he quickly found a market for his art in the Western pulps. EggenhoferÕs characteristic dry brush technique and deft watercolorsÑ as well as an absolute devotion to accuracy in matters of costume, saddlery and tackÑbrought a new standard of realism to illustrations of Western action and life.
