Our first interview was
with the man who has done the most to promote and
preserve Arizona history in the last four decades,

LeeAnn Sharpe aka Crazy Cowgirl has been
in love with the old west all of her life. Growing up in
Arizona she had the opportunity to travel with her
father to nearly every little town and ranch in the
state as he made sales calls to his Union Oil Company
accounts. While he did business she had the day to
explore and often listen to old timers recount the
history of the area.
After several careers including staff
photographer for Valley National Bank which took
her on the road around the state again, and as owner of
Computer Exchange, the largest HP independent dealership
in Arizona, she has settled into a life as a freelance
Spirit of the Old West Alive came about
as she wrote the stories of people who keep the spirit
of the old west alive and felt the need to record their
voice telling part of the story themselves. You really
get a chance to know a person better when you hear their
voice and see their face as they share their stories.
The project is a not for profit endeavor
to bring people in to hear these interviews and that
someday will result in a book telling the stories of all
of these marvelous people.
