Throwback Thursday: Arizona Highways, June 1945

From the issue: "Typically American is our cover scene — a barefoot boy fishing from a rocky ledge in the cool solitude of a clear mountain stream, hands gripping a crooked improvised fishing pole, attention riveted on the bobber of his line, a can of worms conveniently at his side, and his patient, faithful dog to keep him company as he enjoys the thrills of the great out-of-doors. Chuck Abbott has truly caught the Spirit of Young America in this delightful scene."
