Vignettes from Wyoming's Past

Click on a link below for true narratives from Wyoming history. These were prepared for the American History Cowboy Coalition, a federally funded Teaching American History program in the Natrona County School District in Casper, Wyoming. Each topic relates directly to the topics in Wyoming Voices, a three-hour video on Wyoming history produced in 2002 by Deborah Hammons for Wyoming Public Television. The show takes up three DVDs and is available at most Wyoming libraries.

I wrote the narratives first for students and their teachers, but hope anyone curious about Wyoming and the West will find them interesting. Each is well illustrated, and full of links to other resources. Primary and secondary sources are cited. There will be 28 vignettes by the time the project's finished.
