Keeping the Wild West Alive
When Marty was in his early grade school years he would walk to his
grandmothers house after school everyday. She would give him a treat
and tell him stories about growing up in the Wild West. Delia rode in a
wagon across the largest county in Oklahoma called Osage from the
Vinita area to meet her husband Dale. Dale worked in the 101 Ranch Wild
West Show performing and training horses. Marty's grandmother also
told him stories about the Pawnee Bill Wild West Shows and her visits
with Will Rogers. One of her favorite sorties was about the unveiling of
the Pioneer Woman in 1930. She said Will had everyone rolling with
laughter when he commented about the Pioneer Woman having a girdle
on the prairie. After the unveiling of the statue Will and Delia had a picnic
together and she recalls him talking to her about the pickled watermelon
that was so popular. Delia received letters from Will over the years from
places he had visited around the world. One of the letters Marty recalls
her reading was about the Mississippi floods. Delia keep the letters at in
her dresser tied in a blue ribbon Marty recalls.
Marty has relative ties to the
legendary Will Rogers by way of
his great grandmother Delia
McSpadden. He would spend
many hours after school listening
to Delia's stories about his
grandfather who was a Wild West
show performer and the times she
spent with her cousin Will Rogers.

millions with their courage, determination,

West shows represented idealized images
of the past, but they were also agents of
cultural change who challenged the
