BILLY THE KID ON PBS

On January 10th at 9/8 Central PBS history series AMERICAN EXPERIENCE will be kicking off a month-long “Wild West” collection with a new show about Billy the Kid.

This should be a must see for anyone interested in The Kid.

 

WELCOME TO COWBOY TO COWBOY

  Why did we name our Old West blog “Cowboy to Cowboy”?  At onetime everyone who’s intrigued with the Old West has wanted to be a cowboy… even the ladies.  Unfortunately, for most of us the closest we’ve been able to come to being a real cowboy is to own horses, go on horse pack trips and do a little roping.

We regularly have people come up to us… mostly men… and say they were born 125 years to late.  They should have lived in the Old West.  Incidentally, I would like to go back to the late 1800’s just for a couple of days.  I love my hot showers and flush toilets to much.

I truly believe the Old West is a time and place of the heart.  And in the spirit of that belief whether you’re a working cowboy in Wyoming or a Los Angeles banker living in a high‑rise apartment, if you love the Old West and have the spirit of the cowboy, you’re a cowboy.  And so, when you visit us, we’ll be communicating “Cowboy to Cowboy.”
