- While pursuing my Master's in history, I'd done a ton of research on the western railroads, their expansion, and its impact on Native American tribes in the region, including the Cheyenne.
- I've visited southwestern Montana many times, and the country is largely unchanged, so I had a good visual image to work from.
An example of the end result:
- I did plenty of research on Vegas up to and including this time when Sinatra and his buddies strutted around like they owned the place.
- I lived and worked in Vegas for a couple of years and have been back a few times since. I am here to tell you, Vegas is one of those places that, as much as it changes, doesn't really change.
