Behind Every Man

You know the how the old saw goes…
While visiting the CM Russell Museum down in Great Falls several weeks back, I came across this most interesting and fascinating read by Joan Stauffer. The book is “Behind Every Man: The Story Of Nancy Cooper Russell” by Joan Stauffer. After Nancy Cooper married Charlie Russell in 1895, she helped turn a journeyman cowboy and ranch hand who sketched and sculpted in his spare time into a full-time artist who sold and exhibited all over the globe. In “Behind Every Man; The Story of Nancy Cooper Russell, Stauffer offers the first biography of the person whom Charles Russell called “the best booster and pardner a man ever had”. Now whether or not, he had a few amber brews under his belt when he said it, I don’t really know. Writer Stauffer reveals that Nancy and Charles’s union created a practical synergy.. Always an advocate for her husband, a steward of his art, and a liaison to his admirers and critics, Nancy’s greatest contribution may have been the inspiration she provided Charles. The old cowboy once once said, “I done my best work for her”. It’s a cool book, especially for those of us here in the Golden Triangle. I encourage you to check it out. It’s for sale at the CM Russell Museum, 400 13th Street North in Great Falls and also from the Univesity of Oklahoma Press, 222.oupress.com
