My writings are mostly Americana with articles including biographies of historical figures in the fields of art, traditional music, medicine and Native American life. In addition I have included fiction portraying frontier subjects. Additional articles are about the history of dog breeds and of some other historical subjects.

My hub on African American Cowboys, a neglected area of  black history, was well recieved on hubpages..
