Figure descriptions
A woman kneels beside a young girl and teaches her to use a rifle. The woman kneels on a bundle of grain. She wears a dress and a hat which is tied under her chin but has fallen off her head. The young girl wears a feathered hat. She holds the rifle with both hands and aims it toward the right side of the illustration, behind the kneeling woman. On the right side of the illustration, a butterfly flies over a large flowering plant. A dog frolics beside the plant. The woman looks over her shoulder to look at the dog. The illustration title (which is also the poem title) is centered above the illustrated scene and is curved in a slight arch. The illustrated caption appears below the illustrated scene. Full page.
