"The West -
the very words go straight to that place of the heart where Americans feel the spirit of pride in their Western Hertiage - the truimph of personal courage over any obstacle, whether nature or man." John Wayne
Briefly the history of America goes like this:
there was a frontier, then there was no longer a frontier. It all happened rather quickly. First, there were Indians and millions of American Bison, then explorers, then settlers, then towns, then cities. No one was paying attention until the moment the widerness was officially tamed, at which point everybody wanted it back.
In fact, to foreign visitors
during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the American Man was a virtual tourist attraction in his own right, almost as fasinating as Niagara Falls or that ambitious new railroad system or those exotic Indians. This was a particular man, this wilderness-bred American...he was Pecos Bill, he was Paul Bunyan.
What refined the early Americans
more than anything else was their resourcesfulness, born out of challenges of wrenching a New World from virgin wilderness. Unhindered by class restrictions, bureaucracy, or urban squalor, these Americans who were our very own grandparents simply got more done in a single day than anyone had imagined possible.
In short, Bison Creek Ranch reflects
this early pioneer resourefulness since, privately owned in the eighteenth century! Experience a time when California was part of the "American Wild West" and the "Great California Gold Rush!" The early log cabins and barns here on the ranch were entirely hand built piece by piece soley from raw resources and timber off the ranch offering an agricultural tourism education on how the early Americans once work to live in tranquility within the American wilderness out West!
~Happiness is not a destination, it's a way of life!~
By standing up for the values, ideals, and ethics of the West, Bison Creek Ranch demonstrates this creed - this cowboy way.
