As a child, I was blessed by having living grand and great-grandparents. Their lives in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s fascinated me. Whenever  I was able I begged for stories they had lived instead of traditional bedtime stories.

I shared some of these stories with a friend. This friend and some others said, “They were to busy to write them down so you have to do it.”

This tale is a fictionalized collection of some of their tales of life on the plains.
