The Wild West has long fascinated many Americans. (I don't know if anyone on here has noticed, but I it interests and fascinates me a lot too) :) It has been the scene for many a movie. The setting for many a dime novel, novel, or Western movie that thrilled audiences both fifty + years ago and now. For some it's the wide open country side and the beauty of the sky or the mountain or the vistas and bluffs that the characters find themselves traveling on. For others it's the intrigue, the suspense, and the knowledge that the "good guy" will win, it's only a question of "How?". For others it's the bravery, the sacrifice, and the courage of the "good guy" or the good heart behind the cold exterior of the outlaw that's going to eventually surface and save the day. For some it's all of those combined. And yet there are still many, many other reasons why people enjoy Westerns, and the Wild West, and the whole idea of it all in general.
