There is something interesting about History for everyone.

Howdy! Come and explore the stories of founders, trailblazers, homesteaders, gold prospectors, explorers, stagecoach drivers, and railroad builders with Ash and me (My daughter’s pet cat Melody, aka Ash). If you’re a life-long learner, like me, or just need some information on a specific period in History, step back in time as we explore. My favorite history – well, it’s all history. But, for this website, I am focusing on the development of the American West. We may jump around a bit, depending if I have made a trip to the site yet; I have traveled to numerous historical sites. Well, Partner, in addition to my pet Ash, it’s nice to have company on the trail. Explore history with Michelle (that’s me) and Ash (she’s the adorable furry one). And, we’re off! “Slap some bacon on a biscuit and let’s go! We’re burnin’ daylight!” John Wayne as Will Anderson in The Cowboys.
