This chapter provides a detailed account of a meeting with Peter Hurd, a famous artist who had married into the Wyeth family. The meeting occurred over thirty years ago, and presents Hurd as a true-blue cowboy who can cuss in two languages for ten minutes without repeating himself and who would rather ride a good horse than eat. It includes Hurd's standard answers for all interviews, which provide a glimpse into both his artistic and his cowboy side.
