Abstract: Carl Topilow suggested a collaboration between Mauldin and Richard Lamm, who had written a narration about the American West and who was looking for a composer to set it. At the same time, Toni Watkins, a member of the NRO board, approached Mauldin to commission a work in honor of her husband's memory. The work was "dedicated to Victor Watkins, who came to this country as a young boy from a land where hope had died to a land where hope was infinite, and who loved this country, fought for it and believed in it through all his life."
