'After Santee left the Chicago Art Institute in 1912, he spent an unsuccessful year in New York City trying to get his artwork published. After year of rejection notices, he burned his art supplies and moved to Arizona to live with his mother and sister. While in Arizona he found work on a ranch wrangling horses. Despite his experiences in New York, Ross resumed sketching while working on the ranch. In 1920, with the encouragement of friends and local publishers, Ross returned to New York City. This time the publishers were not only interested in his drawings but were also interested in his experiences as a cowboy. They convinced him to pen short stories based on his time on the ranch. Over the next five decades he wrote thirteen books, dozens of short stories and made thousands of sketches.' (Arizona Historical Society). Men and Horses was his first publication. FINE / Very Good.
