Why the Wild West?

Long ago, but not so long that it's not relevant*, most of the West was a vast and open and natural expanse. The indigenous people who lived here didn't make concrete cities -- they didn't make cities at all! -- and most of what is now densely populated and heavily...

Why Campfire Soap?

A Blazin' Western story...

You've been riding hard since the ambush. You knew the canyon was a risky route, but it was going to shave a good four hours off your ride, so you took the risk. Plus, it was hot and getting hotter when you made the near-fatal decision. The canyon seemed like...

I'm sorry: The shaving soap will not be available after all
