"The Lost Greenhorn" by Alfred Jacob Miller depicts a lone (and perhaps inexperienced) man out on the trail.

Originally painted in 1866
Unframed Western art print
Alfred Jacob Miller spent a lot of time with fur traders and trappers who were always in pursuit of the beaver. This painting is said to be of the cook on one such expedition who, after boasting about something, was given the challenge of going off on his own. He was found 3 days later "nearly starved" but still alive.
