The faded pencil script spelled out rough poems, descriptions of sunsets and hangings, saloon scenes, cowboy tall tales, the wide-open prairie and the sharp retort of the gun. 

 From Owen Wister’s pen, the cowboy myth was born and became a true relic of Wyoming’s rich past. 

 The Pioneers of Outlaw Country. 

Cowboys, Lawmen and Outlaws… to the businessmen and women who all helped shape Wyoming. 

Here are their stories.

 Owen Wister, His Forgotten Words  


For over 65 years, Owen Wister's journals lay forgotten - until a stubborn librarian from the University of Wyoming insisted they existed. Today, thanks to his persistence, the journals have been found and now reside at the American Heritage Center in Laramie, Wyoming for future generations! 

This program has been made possible through a grant from Wyoming Humanities.
