Dr. History's audio stories of the Old West. Stories of Cowboys, Indians, Mountain men, pioneers, the Oregon Trail, miners, cattle drives, stagecoach and bank robbers, the cavalry, outlaws and lawmen, some famous and some you have never heard of. From the Custer Battlefield to the Klondike to Indian battles to buried treasure and lost mines to the early explorers. I love telling true stories that shaped the old west.

SHUT UP

Perhaps the host should listen to other successful podcasters and follow their format. I find the host's comments very annoying and the constant interruptions. Such a shame when there are so few podcasts that cover this era of America history. Made it through 1 & half episodes but no more thanks.
