“Trusty By My Side” was originally sculpted in 1998 as part of the ongoing Western Women Series. “The inspiration came from reading an account of a woman who protected her home and children from invading Comanches with the aide of a dog named Trusty and a rifle over the fireplace. Cathy Smith provided the Colt pump action rifle and the historically accurate clothes. Cathy has been the costumer for major films such as Dances With Wolves.” – excerpt from “No turning Back – The Art of Veryl Goodnight.”
