[Sam Myres can recall the real west]

Description: Newspaper clipping detailing Sam Myres and his legacy as one of the last to be able to recall the real wild west. The article goes on to talk about how Myres was friends with "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Pawnee Bill, Will Rogers, and Pancho Villa. It also talks about how he started becoming involved in the saddle trade, learning the skill and then opening up his own shop at a mere twenty-two years of age. Myres also talks about his disdain for western films due to the fact that he feels they are not very accurate - especially the inclusion of "two-gun men" which he never encountered.
