Now, while I did actually grow up within the grips of Amarillo, Tx (Population c. 200k). I was raised by an agriculture rich family; both farming and ranching are the heritage from which ALL of my family have descended. It's something I've always been very proud of AND what has helped foster my passion and intrigue of the Old West.
That is why we've decided that it's about time we honor both the history of our ancestry and of the land that we actually thrive from and tell a story of the romanticism and nostalgia of the American West. Well, that and the fact that it's an excuse to play with guns and ride horses.
We're in the middle of developing the story line and characters. So, if you have a favorite western story we would love to hear from you. Even cooler would be to hear stories that pertain to the history of Amarillo or the panhandle!
