Giddyup, partner. This week, Charlie Barker sends us back to those thrilling days of yesteryear. To the times when the lawless frontier ran amok. Back to the days when the west was truly wild.
The first tale in the trio is called A MITE PECKISH. It’s about a lonely, dusty dried up old town where the local watering hole is just the only place to congregate. It also draws in someone who just may not be there for the company or the drinks. In FEVER DREAMS, a young boy has a strange connection to a girl in frontier America. One that may not be so healthy. Thirdly, it’s a true story about an old west bandit who became more of a legend after he died than while he was alive. It is part of the “States of Fear” sub-series and takes place in Oklahoma. It is entitled WANTED DEAD, NOT ALIVE.
On Thursday, we will return to the 21st century (for the most part) as we examine some famous myths and legends. All three will be part of the “States of Fear” and feature totally true tales of local lore. Join Char in the Circus of the Unknown.
