The Story of Leanin' Tree - Art and Enterprise in the American West

"Growing up in rural Nebraska in the 1930s, I was fascinated by the cowboy culture of the great American West. In 1949, I teamed with artist Bob Lorenz and with a handshake we founded Lazy RL Ranch, which later became Leanin’ Tree and Trumble Greetings," says Ed Trumble, founder. Now, in celebration of the company's 60th year, he has joined acclaimed western writer Don Hedgpeth in telling this delightful tale of the Leanin' Tree history.

Enjoy a compelling narrative of how Leanin' Tree and its famous cards came to be. Ed offers amusing accounts of sharing shenanigans and good times with artists, gallery owners and early collections. In 1958, Ed began collecting western art by respected artists of the period. The book showcases over 100 artists with nearly 500 stunning paintings and sculptures from the museum collection, all in full color.
