Vintage and Modern Photographs of California









The Cattle Trail in 1905Old West Photos - From notorious outlaws , to buffalo roaming the range, and pioneers on the trail, this collection of vintage photographs provides dramatic glimpses into the rich heritage of the American West






Did You Know??

Spanish Missions were not churches. They were Indian towns, with the church as the focus, where, in the 1700s, the native people were learning to become Spanish citizens. In order to become a citizen, they had to be Catholic; that is why the King of Spain sent missionaries to acculturate them.

Texas - The Lone Star State

The word Texas comes from the word "teysha" meaning "hello friend" in the language of the Caddo Indian tribes and the state's motto is "Friendship."  The people of Texas live by those words and welcome you to the Lone Star State.  With more than 267,000 square miles, everything really is bigger in Texas. 

With four national forests, two national parks, 120 State Parks and a wealth of history, the State of Texas will provide you with miles of entertainment. 

Sprinkled with a bit of old-fashioned Western Grit, you will see craggy mountains, pine forests, canyons, and tall grass prairies.  As you cross this second largest state in the nation, you can experience everything from cowboys to High Tech Urban Sprawls. Texas offers something for everyone!

On these pages you will read about the infamous outlaws Sam Bass and Wild Bill Longley, Indian Wars, the casualties of Route 66, the ghost towns of Texas, and much more.

Enjoy your travels in Texas and welcome to the Lone Star Legends.

Kathy R. Weiser

The Alamo at night

The Alamo at night. One can almost imagine those long ago Texian soldiers hunkered down behind these walls listening signs of attack from  the Mexican Army. Kathy Weiser, February, 2011.
