Good eye, bad hip cont...
"But then I was born without the nesting gene."
Jim says the second question is almost always, "But isn't that lonely?", which is telling because as his newsletter has relayed often, there is still something most Americans (and all law enforcement) find unsettling about a wandering drifter in the west and adds an equal number can't help but be intrigued by this life...or at least wonder."
'After folks digest that along with the fact that I haven't had a television for all this time and haven't caught more than a glimpse or two for even longer, most want to know what it's like? My stock answer is if you think you'd like it, you will probably love it. If you think it sounds miserable, it will be worse...I happen to love it, but then I was born without the "nesting" gene.'
Whether it be fact or fiction, real or imagined, the West has always conjured images of romance and independence...the truth is somewhere in between, but regardless, over the years, it has lured more than its fair share of heroes and dreamers, wanderers and wayfarers. It's a magical combination and anyone who spends any amount of time there knows there is still some of that left...and Jim's goal is to help document that before it's gone forever.

History in Your Backyard?
When all is said and done...
It's about the images...
There are "no posed cowboys", "costumed Indians", or "staged events" of any kind....this is the way the West is and in many ways, the way it was...at least for now.
That said, and because there are as many stories still to be found here as there are images to be had, if after you have purchased a print or upon consideration of one, you would like to know the story behind, please do not hesitate to ask..
The Indian & The Cowboy
An Evening of music, art, food and ramblings from the road.
Whether it be the observations we offer through our enounters with the thousands of folks we've met, the endless series of mishaps that have befallen us both...or just the images we have created, we are confident you will walk away with a smile that fills the evening.
