The Drop Edge of Yonder (40 page)

Ten years after Delilah sailed away with Captain Dorfheimer, the photographer's portraits of Zebulon, along with a dozen landscapes of the Far West, were shown to enthusiastic acclaim in a New York gallery. The most famous portrait was bought by a French collector and showed Zebulon sitting on a billiard table in the Last Chance Saloon, staring into the camera as he cradled his dead father in his arms.

The photograph was later sold to a San Francisco museum, where it was never shown, the image having faded to such a degree that Zebulon's face had become blank.
