The Wild West

cattle drives, the St. James Hotel, & cowboys of the old west 

 
Click on the images below to learn about cattle drives, the haunted St. James Hotel and the original cowboys. 
Old west actors like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood painted a romantic picture of the American Cowboy, but reality was a little bit different back in the 1800's.
 
While researching the location of the Mountain Realm story, we came across a little town called Cimarron with a real-life haunted hotel called the St. James.  These places, along with the cattle drive, gives part of the story a Wild West feel.  Indeed, if the grid went down for years, it would be the Wild West all over again.
