Authentic West
Western Articles as a matter of Fact

This section of the Rope and Wire website takes a break from traditional western short stories. Here you'll find western articles of interest for your reading enjoyment.

Even if you don't live in these parts, you can be an armchair traveler as you learn of interesting places to go and fun things to do.  Just click on an image to go to the authors page.

Maybe one of these western articles will spur you into taking a much needed vacation.

You don't have to be a published author to submit a non-fiction western article of around 500 to 1000 words. If you have a website or a book for sale I'll gladly link back to it.

Send your submission to as an email attachment. Send it as a Word, .doc or .rtf file and title it "Authentic West Submission".
