Additional Details

Bill Hampton’s Old Gold Tooth became Leanin’ Tree’s first birthday card after Ed Trumble commissioned Western poet S. Omar Barker to compose the following verse to accompany the image: “May neither drought nor rain nor blizzard/Disturb the joy-juice in your gizzard!/And may you camp where wind won’t hit you/Where snakes won’t bite and bears won’t git you/Happy Birthday” Hampton’s humorous and soulful portraits have graced Leanin’ Tree cards ever since.
