Today was a big day. We gathered in Tucson to honor this guy:
It rained all the way to Tucson yesterday.and I worried that our unveiling was going to be spoiled. It still looked like rain this morning, and it was overcast with tattered clouds hanging low on the Catalinas.
An unsung Arizona pioneer finally got his day in the sun. Thanks to John Langellier, who found James Young's unmarked grave, and worked tirelessly to convince all of us at True West to help produce a marker for the one-time Texas John Slaughter cowboy. We gathered at his grave to honor his memory. It was a touching tribute and we were all glad to have been there.
