1923 Cover Youths Companion Art Buckskin Desert Joseph T Kescel Border YYC4


Please note that this is a cover only!

This is an original 1923 two-color cover for The Youth's Companion magazine, December 6, 1923, that featured an excerpt from the dramatic serial story, "Buckskin and Desert" by Joseph T. Kescel. The quote reads; "Courage! What if the snows are deep. And what if the hills are long and steep. And the days are short and the nights are long. And the good are weak and the bad are strong. Courage! The snow is a field of play. And the longest hill has a well worn way. There are songs that shorten the longest night. There's a day when wrong shall be ruled by right. So Courage! Courage! 'Tis never so far from a plodded path to a shining star.
