A Canvas Home on The RangeMay 14, 1997

Name: A Canvas Home on the Range

Location: Gothenburg, Nebraska

The light white canvas cover on a wagon was very useful. It allowed light into the wagon box during the day, yet it protected family and belongings from the burning sun. The heavy duck also sheds water well and was a good tent at night.
