Ridgway Glovers Lament
Some looked for homesteads
And some looked for gold
Some put their faith in the guns that they'd hold
But I will travel, he said, as I can
To photograph this great and wondrous land

Proud chiefs in headdress with faces like stone
Settlers with children in their wilderness home
The hills and plains of the great hunting ground
Suspicious talks of treaties in the round

They surely won't fear me
They know of my worth
They know my respect for the land of their birth
For this I have waited for so long
They surely took his scalp to prove him wrong
