As much as we love the
"American Old West"

the very things we love about it are disappearing every day.

That's why capturing
the stories of the old west, 
straight from the
 "People Who Have Kept
the Spirit of the Old West Alive"
is an important project.

Join us as we interview and record oral histories before they fade away...

 

Bob Boze Bell is the Executive Editor of True West Magazine. He's also a talented artist, cartoonist and  humorist. Tie that in with lifelong historian and you have an interesting package of talent that fills the desires of many an arm chair old west buff every time the True West Magazine hits the stands.
