An Illustrated Account of the Pleasant Valley Sheep War

The Pleasant Valley Sheep War broke out in Arizona in the 1880s between two families, the sheep-herding Tewksburys and the cattle-herding Grahams. By the war's end, nearly every family member of both clans was dead.

Lucas Adams is an illustrator in New York City. His illustrations of his great-grandfather W.G. Pope’s journal during W.G.’s time as a dairy farmer in 1941 can be seen here.
