Discover the Romance of the American West

According to Stuart Rosebrook of "True West Magazine", "the definition of the Old West is changing and moving further and further into the 20th century.  The three genres that are growing every year in Westerns are Mystery, Romance, and Frontier, all of which are pushing their heroes and heroines well into the 21st century."
