Three Apaches race to stay ahead of a dust devil, the desert hot-weather whirlwind which picks up dust and debris and spins them around, then dies and lets them settle slowly back to the earth. The white man speaks of thermals and explains them in dry meteorological terms, but the Apache of old knew better. He knew that the devil was inside the whirlwind, and that if an Indian were caught up in it, he would soon die.

Howard Terpning saw this as an interesting problem in design. He wanted a strong feeling of motion, to convey the sense that the Apaches were galloping their horses as hard as they could. He succeeded in this release from The Greenwich Workshop.
