YES TOM HORN OF NACONA, TEXAS WAS A DELTA AIRLINES MAN.
THE NAME GOES DOWN IN HISTORY AS WELL AS A MOVIE WAS MADE CALLED “TOM HORN”
A ALL TIME WESTERN A FAVORITE OF MINE.  ITS STAR ACTOR WAS STEVE  MCQUEEN.
 
NOW TO GET TO A STORY OF THE OLD WEST.
I HAD A CHANCE ONCE WHEN A TEENAGER TO TAKE ON A SUMMER JOB ON A SHEEP RANCH IN SOUTH DAKATO.  SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE.  IN THE MOUNTAIN STATES OF IDAHO, MONTONA AND WYOMING YOU CAN STILL FIND THE SHEEP HERDERS COVERED WAGON.    NO ELECTRICITY OR RUNNING WATER.  JUST A MAN, HIS SHEEP DOG, AND RIFLE.  THE LAST ONE FOR BEARS AND MOUNTAIN LIONS WHICH PREY THE WILDERNESS.
 
THE OLD DAYS MOST OF THEM CAME FROM THE OLD COUNTRY WHERE THE BASQUE PEOPLE LIVED  IN ITALY.  A TRADITION THAT WAS BROUGHT TO AMERICA FROM OUR IMIGRANTS.
 
THE SHEEP HERDERS COVERED WAGON, THE ONE ROOM SCHOOL HOUSE AND THE WINDMILLS CAN STILL BE FOUND.  I FOR ONE HOPE THEY NEVER LEAVE  BUT MUST SAY THEY ARE A DYING ICON.
