The May 2014 line-up:
The Wind Wagon
SITTING BULL GOES TO CANADA – After the Little Big Horn, Sitting Bull found the military determined to destroy him. So he went to Canada. But that didn’t last long.
THE GREAT REPUBLIC – A story that illustrates the Biblical principal of casting your bread upon the water.
PYRAMID LAKE WAR – In the battle between the cowboys and Indians, sometimes the Indians not only won, they won big. This is a perfect illustration.
WIND WAGON – Samuel Peppard didn’t let his not having horses or oxen hamper him from traveling out west in his wagon. He used a resource in abundance in the Kansas Territory.
POKER FOR CATTLE – No penny-ante poker here. In place of chips, cattle was placed on the table with winner take all.
TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD COMPLETED – The story of the celebration that took when the two railroads met at Promontory, Utah. But was the railroad really completed?
MORSE-SOTO SHOOTOUT – Was there a Superman in the 1800s? When you’re done with this story, you may think his name was Harry Morse.
DAVE MATHER – Known as Mysterious Dave Mather, he was hired as a lawman more for his skill with a gun, than his skill at obeying the law.
JESSE TYLER – Jesse was a lawman in Utah who, unfortunately, got caught up in political correctness, and it caught him his life.
STAGECOACH TREASURE – Another story of lost treasure found. But the finder died before he could tell anyone where it is.
WILLIAM SUBLETTE – Most mountain men wanted to stay away from people. Sublette was different. He was an organizer and a businessperson.
SAN QUENTIN JAILBREAK – Because of extenuating circumstances, this “jailbreak” was more of a “let-out.”
GOOD BROTHER/BAD BROTHER – It’s always interesting how brothers take different paths in life, and how one influences the other to take his path…even if it isn’t the straight and narrow.
JOHN THOMPSON – Here is the amazing story of a mailman who, for twenty years, endured unbelievable obstacles to make sure the mail was delivered.
DICK FELLOWS – We think of Old West outlaws as good horsemen. But that sure wasn’t true of Dick Fellows.
WALLACE’S HORSE – Jim Wallace had a white faced horse that seemed to get him in a lot of trouble.
SODBUSTERS – With the signing of the Homestead Act, pioneers went out west only to find areas with no lumber to build homes. But they adapted.
CURLY – Curly was a Crow Indian scout attached to George Custer’s command. Circumstances were such that he watched Custer’s defeat from a nearby hill.
CODY’S MEDAL OF HONOR – Most people don’t know that Buffalo Bill Cody won a Congressional Medal of Honor. Well, he won it; got it taken away; and then got it again.
JOHN WESLEY HARDEN I & II – Although he was a preacher’s son, and named after the founder of the Methodist Church, this John Wesley was a murderer and all around bad guy.
ASHLEY AND THE ARIKARAS – The early explorers and mountain men had to fight the elements, wildlife and Indians. And Ashley’s group was no different.
