Coming up: Old West glossary, no. 20


  1. Cool pics. I downloaded about 30 free westerns for my Kindle last night from Amazon. Mostly Max Brand

  2. Those two boys wrestling the bull look like they have their hands full. I'll bet the bull won.

  3. That Idaho cattle drive is so idyllic. How come when I had to round up cattle it was always on foot?

  4. Love the Idaho cattle drive too. Those golden leaves just center it.
