Vol. 5 - No.03 March, 2023 Nooseletter Home SUBMIT AN ARTICLE
Welcome to the 48th edition of the Reel Cowboys Nooseletter. That means that this issue celebrates 4 continuous years of the Nooseletter. I think somebody owes me a breakfast. Lol. No, seriously!
On a sad note, we lost a cherished Reel Cowboys member last month, Stella Stevens. I have put together a memorial page for her on our website. Click here to see it.

Twelve Ways to Spend Free Time
~Selme Angulo
The Old West is a place of legend and lore. We’ve all read the tall tales about outlaws, gunslingers, shootouts, and skirmishes from the Great Plains to the Southwest and places farther west. Many of the shocking stories are real. Many others are embellished. For more than two centuries now, the myths of the frontier remain in American culture. But what about how life really was back then? After all, there were far more people in the Great West than just sheriffs and train robbers. How did these regular folks live?

D to the AZ
~Jenn Thompson
In the early years of his acting career, future Hollywood honcho John Wayne starred in the 1931 film Arizona. It was a sign of things to come. The actor went on to shoot several films in the Grand Canyon State during his long and illustrious run as the biggest thing on the...
Harsh Realities of Common Jobs
~Selme Angulo
The Wild West era of American history is often romanticized as a time of rugged outlaws and fearless lawmen. Those people really did exist, of course. But there was much more to this period than just gun battles and train robberies. Beneath the surface of the popular...
Iconic Wild West Figures
~Jon Kuroski
The Wild West might be long gone, but it has left us with a slew of iconic figures that still remain incredibly popular to this day. Lawmen, outlaws, frontiersmen, pioneers, the Old West had it all. If there is something that the West was good at, it was taking a man...

Wild Burros - Forgotten Equine
~Staci-lee Sherwood
Many people wonder what the difference is between a wild Burro and a Donkey. They are the same species. Their name differentiates them as either domesticated (donkey) or wild (burro) but they are both burros. A mule is the offspring of a female horse and a male donkey. All three have a long sordid history and relationship with people, most notably as a cheap form of transport. The wild burro was given full legal protection...
Saloon Cowboys
~Art Saborio
The saloon cowboy is depicted in both movies and books. It is the Old West that made them the icon that they are today. Saloons were common in almost all cities, yet a few areas already had Mexican-style cantinas. Saloons mostly looked the same throughout the west. They had a common wooden front with a wooden boardwalk. There were always a few hitching posts to tie a horse. Often a water source would be located close by for horses to...
Teenage Outlaw of the West
~Kathy Weiser-Alexander
Henry McCarty, aka William Henry Bonney, aka Billy the Kid, was born on November 23, 1859, most likely in New York City. His parents’ names are not known for certain, but his mother was thought to be Katherine, and his father, perhaps Patrick. History then traces Billy to Indiana in the late 1860s and Wichita, Kansas in 1870. His father died around the end of the Civil War, and at about the same time, Billy’s mother contracted Tuberculosis and was...

What Life Was Really Like As A Wild West Sheriff
Wild West sheriffs kept law and order on the frontier alongside fellow lawmen and the local
citizenry. They’ve been dramatized, glamorized, and exaggerated in films and literature for
generations and yes, the life of a Wild West sheriff was dangerous, but it could also be weird.
