Out Where the West Begins

From the pages of Canadian Cattlemen June 1, 1947

Out Where the West Begins
by W.J. Wilde

“Did the west begin at Winnipeg
The gateway to the west?
Or was it Regina
Where the mounties made the test?
Maybe it was Medicine Hat
Where cowboys by the score
Rode into town when the beef was shipped
To cut loose with a roar…” (cont.’d)
