SWEETHEARTS OF THE WEST
For generations, stories about the American West have stirred the soul, captured the imagination and attracted audiences all over the world. Without question, the American West has influenced literature, art, music, architecture, fashion, jewelry, toys, and the entertainment industry -- from old radio shows, musical theatre, television programs and major motion pictures. No doubt, it is a combination of many things that interest us, from wide open spaces and blue skies, to a fascination with history and the diverse culture from Native Americans as well as American pioneers, the archetypical cowboy hero, quick draw outlaws, Wildcatters who drilled for oil and prospectors searching for gold and silver. But it was the written word that first captured the majesty and romance of the American West. Like the vast open prairie or the high desert, stories about the American West are limitless and continue to inspire the imagination of authors.
