Happiness is Hard to Find
Tales and Trails
A Western Odyssey
The old West was wild and fraught with danger. Greenhorn settlers, tinhorn gamblers, ruthless gunslingers, crooked lawmen, and dance hall floozies mixed with robbers, riders, posses, padres, storekeepers, blacksmiths, bankers, robber barons, and ne'er-do-wells. In this book, you'll ride stagecoaches down dusty trails to frontier settlements desperately needing law and order, medicine to ight disease, and common decency. these stories attempt to mix fact and fiction to bring that era to you in the comfort of your air-conditioned home, while waiting for the automatic dryer to finish you laundry, as dinner is in the electric oven, so you can relax in your recliner and enjoy "the good old days".
This book, Alternate Perspectives, is the result of a writing exercise we completed, looking at the world from a non-human point of view. As you will see, we have writers that offer stories filled with humor, emotion, and depth. When one considers that many of these stories were written in a flash as part of our exercises-by budding authors, explorative authors, and those who were "lapsed writers" due to life's journeys, the results are even more impressive.
