Michigan Cowboy Rides to Santa Fe

John Wayne (yep that’s his real name) decided to leave his unhappy life in Michigan and follow Horace Greeley’s advice, “Go West young man . . .” He saddled his horse and accompanied by his dog Sheila they set off for California, on a journey of many months, with his faithful canine walking alongside. During their amazing adventure across the US, they decided to stop in Santa Fe to visit family and here they found a new home.
