Chapter 14 of 'The Drifter' has been submitted for posting at
Stories On Line.
The story of a boy who spends his younger days living
in a rundown shack beside a railroad. The lonesome sound
of the outward bound, gives the boy a restless itch to
go west. He's thirteen when his Ma dies, and the yearning
to follow the restless wind grows until there comes a day he
can no longer deny his need to roam. There is some sex in
this story, as the boy begins learning how to be a man.
Today, 'The Drifter' will meet two of the most influential men
to ever ride through history - and across the Old West of
Two men who helped carve and shape the Old West into a vast
range land. Their legends stand to this day as role models for
the generations who continue to follow.
In the upcoming chapters, you will see mentioned a 'few' of
the 'first' places where 'Riding Contests' were held in the 'West'
They weren't called 'Rodeos' until later, but the 'contests' were
held so the Cowboys and Wranglers from surrounding ranches,
could compete to see who was the best.
