Andy Thomas has brought to life a group of several writers who were very talented at telling "Tales of the Old West." This entertaining scene, thanks to Thomas's imagination and his brush, brings together some of America's well-knowm, beloved writers and other characters sharing their stories. With all the vivid details that make the artist's paintings so wonderful, we find writers such as Mark Twain to Willa Cather.

One of these tellers of tales was Jim Baker, who is featured enthralling the group with a story. In 1839, he left the civilized world to become a mountain man in the vast and cruel American West. Baker survived to live long enough to see the city of Denver emerge where he and the Arapho and Cheyenne had once roamed.

By 1895, Denver had 120,000 people with a telephone system, an opera house, and modern refrigeration. Baker could enjoy a frosty Coors beer or perhaps an ice cream sundae. In the Denver Evening Post, he could read the news from Europe, and perhaps events of the same day, thanks to transatlantic cables. From Denver, Baker could have traveled in a comfortable rail car across the continent.

Denver had everything except Baker's tales of the old West.
