Cheyenne, Wyo. (PRWEB) April 5, 2007
La Frontera Publishing announced today the launch of OldWestNewWest.Com (http://www.oldwestnewwest.com), a new eZine dedicated to showcasing the New West; those festivals, museums, old-town centers, restaurants, artisans and authors who are keeping alive the spirit of the Old West.
"OldWestNewWest.Com is a place on the Internet where fans of the Old West can discover how our Western heritage is being kept alive through events, food, art, song and storytelling," said Mike Harris, publisher for La Frontera Publishing (http://www.lafronterapublishing.com).
"We created OldWestNewWest.Com because we see a renewed interest in the history and legends of America's Old West, and in the men and women pioneers who blazed the trails, built the towns and created a way of life matched by no other nation," he added. "Our eZine will show you where to go to enjoy the West."
The April edition of OldWestNewWest.Com features two major events happening later this month: The 24th annual Gathering of Nations Powwow in Albuquerque, NM, and the 14th annual City of Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival in Southern California.
Additionally, the April edition of OldWestNewWest.Com includes stories on Barelas Coffee House, one of New Mexico's very popular Mexican food restaurants, and how one author, Candy Moulton, battled the National Park Service to help preserve an important part of Old West history.
Future editions of OldWestNewWest.Com will include reports on the Grand Encampment Cowboy Gathering in Wyoming in July, the rich heritage of Olvera Street in Los Angeles, the history behind the Adams Museum & House in Deadwood, SD, and eating prime rib at Buffalo Bill's Irma Hotel in Cody, WY.
"If you're a fan of the Old West, and want to celebrate our Western culture, come visit OldWestNewWest.Com," Harris said. "We'll feature where to go, and what to do when you get there."
