End of the Trail has endured to become one of the most recognizable images in the United States.

Fraser intended the work as a pointed commentary on the damaging effects of Euro-American settlement on American Indian nations confined on government reservations. Seated upon a windblown horse, Fraser's figure slumps over despondently, embodying the physical exhaustion and suffering of a people forcefully driven to the end of the trail.

Later, however, some Indigenous people have come to look on it as “a warrior who is taking a break before getting back up again. There is a degree of lament, but there is also a strong sense of honor and determination.”

Fraser chose to portray the Native American peoples in a trans-formative way: of proud, spiritual people making their way into the next century.
