Sunday, the Inner Circle of Sheridan's Fulmer Public Library became the focal point for a staged reading of a new play written by local resident Grace Cannon. She explains.

A 2006 graduate of Sheridan High School, the play, “My Home Is a Borderland,” is an imaginative documentary of Cannon's experience traveling throughout Germany and the German's interest in the Wild West.

Much of Cannon's experience came from visiting the German “Cowboy Clubs,” places where they can play 'Cowboys and Indians.'

For a young lady born and raised in Sheridan who sports a “King's Rope” cap, German speaking cowboys was an experience in itself.

For the play, Cannon also gleaned from the autobiographical writings of German author Karl May (MY), a contemporary of Buffalo Bill. He wrote adventure tales set in the American Frontier West of the 1800's for the German audience.
