Have you ever wanted to be a brave, heroic cowboy? A gunslinger with a heart of gold or not? How about a saloon girl or wealthy heiress setting her cap at all the eligible young cowboys? Yes! Sagas of the Wild West has a story for you to tell...
Join the brave men and women of Sagas of the Wild West as they struggle to make a living in the wild and harsh Montana territory of the 1870s. The stories are set amidst the backdrop of the spectacular Montana landscape, increasing trouble with Indians, a military bully (yet to be cast), and the usual array of good guys and bad guys. We offer a wide range of writing opportunities and character roles. Sagas encourages its members to explore action, adventure, romance, and mystery of the wild west!
Sagas of the Wild West's universe combines elements of the classical TV and movie westerns of the 1950s, 1960s, and early-1970s with actual historical events.
