Little Brave Heart book cover

A must read for Papoose, Progeny and Parents

Some stories just must be shared and Little Brave Heart Tells His Story, is one that should not be missed – a story for children of all ages, from 1 to 100. We’re never too young or too old to be inspired by an incredible journey. To learn for the first time or be reminded of the importance of the compassion and inspiration that is at the core of the Western soul.

Me and the Music

Some of my earliest memories are of the West Texas beer joints and honkytonks where Daddy fronted a four-piece country band called the Ross City Wranglers. Saturday nights were family affairs in those places. Kids could run and play in the unpaved parking lot, and wander in and out of the dance halls to listen to the music.

A Memory of Midnight
In praise of great dude ranch horses

As a kid of the early 1950s, wrapped up in all things cowboy, the idea of getting to go to a dude ranch for Spring Break was my idea of heaven. Back then they were called Dude Ranches, and for some very good and obvious reasons - mostly with regard to their guest's riding skills.

Mission Statement

Smoke Signals blows your way from High Noon Western Americana of Los Angeles, California, producers of the High Noon Antique Show & Auction for 25 years (1991-2014). Smoke Signals eMagazine was founded in 2010 from a desire to share thoughts and facts with the High Noon community and look at what is going on in the Western world while feeding our readers with great recipes and giving advertisers a chance to blow their own smoke.

And hopefully we educate along the way.
