What makes a slightly dangerous man so darn irresistible? Is it the confident swagger, the boldness in his eyes, the fact that he’s in control of his world?

Made of animal hides, these armas, or shields, attached to the horn of the saddle and wrapped around the rider’s [...]

Good Morning (or afternoon or evening)! In my writing of the American Indian way of life, I’m often struck by the fact that the men of all tribes of American Indians (save those in the far-far north) wore breechcloths. Really… Now, I don’t know about you, but I find the breechcloth quite sexy, so I [...]
