The west is a part of my heritage. My family roots are of pioneers. The Lee’s were some of the first whites in Oregon. The Kimray’s came from North Carolina and homesteaded in Oklahoma. I had ancestors who drove cattle on the Chisolm Trail. My dad’s grandfather knew the Comanche chief Quannah Parker and could speak to him in his own language. I love the history of the west, the Indians, the cowboys, the frontier, the rugged individualism and self-reliance, horses and cattle.
