All but one of the illustrations. If you take a closer look one illustration is done by a ''JF'' it's the only one that is 'signed' and the style is different in general. A closer look will reveal which one, it's in TTOTC.

Not that it makes any difference, but, that's not accurate. Allen Polt did 'sign' each of the illustrations that he did in TTOTC.

RE: The home of Brown
Every so often someone mentions the "code of the west" but no one tells us what it is. Here's one I like.

Code of the West per Jonas Hackett and his son Daniel:

"Respect the land, defend the defenseless and don't never spit in front of women and children."

From Tall Tales (1995)

"Just 'cause it's a tall tale don't mean it ain't true."

Hollywood gets it right once upon a while.

Not to mention the publishing page clearly states “Drawings by Allen Polt unless otherwise noted”
