"As I've said lots of times, I like rivers. I especially like those clear free flowing rivers of the Ozarks which have escaped the attentions of the Army Corps of Engineers. For years I've floated down these rivers every spring... Generally the river floaters I run with make camp at the end of the day on the gravel bars lining one of these pools and fish them while supper is cooked. That's what this litho shows. The pool is under some bluffs on the Buffalo River in the northwest Arkansas." -Thomas Hart Benton


From an edition of 250, circulated by Associated American Artists.
