Bill Traher was born in a sod house in Rock Springs, Wyoming, in 1908. A rough frontier mining settlement, Rock Springs was home to murders, mob violence, and magnificent scenery.  A photograph (yet to be unearthed from the family archives) shows the artist at eight years old with a shot gun under his arm, guarding a campsite from the back of a flat-bed truck.

The eldest of three boys, he was responsible for fending off any Indians who might come to steal from their camp site w (showing 500 of 10199 characters).
