Can you imagine walking in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery as they saw the Pacific Coast for the first time? Fighting the Comanches on the frontier lines with the Texas Rangers? Following the Santa Fe Trail from Bent’s Fort to Santa Fe with Kit Carson? Riding hard against the wind across the Arizona landscape with Geronimo? Walking the boardwalks of the wicked Kansas cowtowns with Wyatt Earp? Or tracking outlaws across the Indian Territory with Big Bill Tilghman?
