I enjoy reading this stuff, even though it seems to be taking forever for experts to reach a consensus on whether or not this is indeed Clell Miller's skeleton.
There's also a letter available on-line at the Minnesota Historical Society. I went hunting for it (again) and couldn't find it (again). The letter was written to the pardon…Continue
I wanna say we were talking about this around a year or so ago.
Saw this and had to post it
Politically, or technically if you prefer, I live in British Columbia. However, geographically British Columbia’s Peace River Country is more like Alberta than the rest of the…Continue
This is becoming a habit.
Perhaps this bodes well.
And studying the whole thing in the wake of it -- even in its era -- has given many a headache since. Did Tom McLaury have a gun ? Who lied during testimony and who didn't ? Will they ever find the actual Coroner's report ? etc, etc.
Here's a solid example of what my efforts produced, in addition to a migraine:
This link is in relation to a few previous posts on the same subject. And it gives a much better breakdown of the various western projects coming to TV.
btw - on a related note, "Long Ranger" with Johnny Depp as Tonto, was officially greenlit earlier this week, with a $215.00 budget. They start shooting in January.

Seems like every day is an Anniversary of some historical incident or event, relating to the era of the Old or Wild West. Even if the incident or event didn't even occur in the West. This one has always been one of my favorites to study. One-Hundred and Thirty-Five Years ago today, the James-Younger Gang attempted to rob a bank in Northfield, Minnesota. And they got the crap kicked out of them for it.
According to Cole Younger, Charlie Pitts (one of three men who went inside the…Continue
This is getting interesting. In addition to the aforementioned Hatfields and McCoys and Gateway -- NBC have ordered a pilot script from the producers of the high school football show Friday Night Lights. The title of that one was not mentioned. However ...
The article (below) also mentions other TV western projects, coming our way. Including AMC's Hell on Wheels, a show about the building of the Union Pacific Railroad in the 1860's, A&E's…Continue
I thought this would be fun a fun post to write, but it took 4 days to finish it.
This is a list of my top 25 favorite western movies. When not working hard on researching and writing my story, these were the films I screened during a lunch or dinner break, or for general inspiration.
Clearly, not everyone's list would be the same, this is simply my list. I'm sure your own would be different -- so let me know what you think. You can leave a message on my blog,…Continue
To commemorate the death of a historical figure who is still very controversial today, I've posted an a brief passage from my book "Western Legend," wherein other historical figures of the American Wild West (Frank James, Virgil and James Earp, and Tom Horn) discuss their own first or second-hand knowledge of Billy "the Kid" Bonney. And to make the passage come alive, I integrated a few photos and a couple YouTube videos, for general reference and entertainment.
The micro-budget Western THE SCARLET WORM is being released on Blu-Ray on Aug. 16th and is screening on Aug. 27th at the New Beverly on Sunset in L.A.
