Old West Lifestyle & Stories


“Frontier battalions were organized and sent out to deal with problems in times of emergencies.”

We all know that, as a country, we’re going through some tough times. As the old saying goes, “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.” And our being tough people is a part of what has made the Unites States the greatest nation on the face of God’s earth.

Some 400 years ago the Pilgrims came to our east coast. For the next 300 years we were a frontier country. In order to survive on that frontier it required hard work, creativity, self-reliance, accountability and cooperation with neighbors. In short, it took people of character.

It has been over a hundred years since our last frontier. And we as a people are loosing those frontier characteristics. We believe this loss of character could very well be the reason we’re having tough times.
For over eleven years, through our monthly 1800’s newspaper, two syndicated radio shows, syndicated newspaper column, book and three extensive web sites we’ve had the mission of “Educating people about the history of our American West in an entertaining way.”

Our objective has been not just to share history, but, in the process, emphasize those precepts that made us the great country we are today. They can be boiled down to three words: “Faith, Family, Freedom.”
Sunny and I have come to the realization that, in order to be truly effective, we need the resources of additional people. So, we’re in the process of forming the “Chronicle of the Old West Frontier Battalion.” Traditionally a Frontier Battalion was organized and sent out to deal with problems in times of emergencies.

We’re looking for people who feel as we do that personal ethics and responsibility are important for a person to live a fulfilled life, and for the United States to remain the great country it has become.

We have no political or religious affiliation. This isn’t a Republican – Democrat or conservative – liberal thing. It’s an American thing.

The Frontier Battalion will be comprised of people who are actively using their skills in a profession and those who have retired with years of experience to share.

Presently we’re using print, radio, TV and Internet to educate people. We want to supercharge what we’re doing and expand the message.

If you’re interested in assuring today’s children and future children the great life we’re experiencing, give me a call at 928/532-2875 or email me at Dakota@RavenHeart.com and tell us how you would like to help.

I know you can help make a difference.
