An impacting gouache illustration painting by the prolific American artist Jules Gotlieb, for the November 25, 1951 issue of The American Weekly, a Randolph Hearst publication.  This was part of an ongoing series about prehistoric times which the supplement ran in 1951. Other artists that worked for this long running title include Henry Clive, Willy Pogany, Nell Brinkly, and James Montgomery Flagg. In this offering the artist explores the life of indigenous Native Americans - verso snipe reads in full, "In the Mississippi valley of 1500 B.C., they lived in small groups. They caught fish on honed hooks and liked their meat cooked."

Gouache is matted but not framed and has numerous publication usage stamps on the verso from The American Weekly.
