&raquo Download Audio(mp3) By Dana Demange 2006-4-9 (MUSIC) VOICE ONE: Welcome to THIS IS AMERICA in VO

people can imagine they are in a town in the old west. at the million dollar cowboy bar, instead of chairs, they can sit on saddles as if riding a horse. on some nights there are dance lessons. people can learn the two-step, a kind of western dance.

or they can eat dinner and listen to live music at the mangy moose saloon. there, a large dead moose hangs from the ceiling.

at the silver dollar bar, a long table is covered with more than two thousand shiny silver dollars. if you look carefully, you see that the coins are all from the year nineteen twenty-one.

visitors can also enjoy an evening at the jackson hole playhouse. in the summer, actors perform musicals and other plays. this brightly painted old theater is one of the oldest wood buildings in town. it has been a popular entertainment place since the nineteen fifties.

voice two:

some of the stores in jackson hole sell unusual things, like furniture made of deer antlers. antlers are the hard and bony points that grow on the heads of male deer. these stores sell chairs, lights and other objects made from antlers. they look more like pointy sculptures than furniture.

many stores in jackson hole sell winter sports equipment and clothing. some sell cowboy clothing. c.j. james owns the jackson hole hat company. her web site describes the cowboy as a "symbol of american independence and strength."

she will sell you a cowboy hat made to fit the exact size of your head. there are many shapes, colors and materials to choose from.
