The heritage of the wild and woolly West for the adults of tomorrow. One set, "western costumes." May be produced with or without audience participation. Written for 3 men and 2 women, with music, but with 42 speaking roles, the number of actors is most flexible. Ideal for K-6, or community audiences. A wildfire success in the West and the Rockies. Music included.With the help of black cowboy Nat Love, "Deadwood Dick", we meet a melting pot of characters who made a difference out West. Don Pedro de la Peralta lays out the city of Santa Fe long before the Pilgrims reach Plymouth Rock. A teenaged Sacagawea helps Lewis and Clark's original exploration of the West. Newspaper editor Gail Borden writes "Remember the Alamo" before inventing a process for condensed milk. Slaves learn about freedom in the Gold Rush. Esther Morris wins the cause for equal rights in Wyoming. John Stetson builds a better hat. Elfego Baca faces prejudice with blazing six-guns. The challenges of the future are pondered by the ancestors of the past, who realize that a people without history are like the "wind on the buffalo grass." Song and story for all.
