With wheels like a wagon and a sail like a ship, it's driven through Westport, Missouri, by a leathery ancient named Windwagon Smith .

With wheels like a wagon and a sail like a ship, it's driven through Westport, Missouri, by a leathery ancient named Windwagon Smith, Captain of the Plains, who announces his plan for a fleet to rush trade goods along the Santa Fe Trail. First described in the Kansas Historical Quarterly, Windwagon Smith's experiment (con?) has since been commemorated in The Santa Fe Trail, the Atlantic Monthly, Tall Tale America, and a Disney cartoon; Maher adds Eric for minimal identification and some colloquialisms from the sea and the prairie for an amiable, folksy flavor.
