Cowboys and Indians, buffalo stampedes, eating well-roasted mouse as a cure for measles - what was it like to live in the Wild West? This area of America stretched from the Mississippi River all the way to the Pacific Ocean.
Although you don't often see covered wagons or teepees these days, there are still cowboys and Indians. And the West is still wild - especially when you consider what else lives there - bears, coyotes and poisonous snakes! As well as amazing nature and incredible adventures, there are stories of people of faith who were inspired by Jesus. You can be like a pioneer as you explore this part of God's surprising and wonderful world. Come along on the journey!
