Nothing captures the imagination quite like the American Old West; cowboys, natives, cattle drives, lawmen, outlaws, romance, steam engines, six-shooters, and horses!
While the "Wild West" era only lasted about 30 years, from 1865-1895, we feature stories that predominantly take place in North America from about 1865 - 1910.
