A killer camel, a tornado-riding con man, a dead dragon, and a naked horse thief are some of the characters in the quirky stories from Southwest history that Peach loves to share in his original cowboy poetry. Laugh at and learn from these very tall and mostly true tales, like how Arizona forfeited a seaport for beer, how nature foiled the perfect bank robbery and how a bobcat terrorized a tavern. Leave this presentation with a smile and a few stories perfect for the campfire!
