The wild West

The West, cool, awesome, cooler than every other state collection thing. It is that and much more. So I want to learn how Alcatraz got it's name. I already know only like 2 things, that John Sutter found gold and started the gold rush that went on for years,and that California has lots of celebrities. I still have 1 question,why is Alcatraz named Alcatraz. I think it was named after someone who was good at catching crooks or was a crook. I,ve been to wild Wyoming and the trilling Montana. At Montana I went to Custer's last stand and just around the border of the state. At Wyoming I rode a bull at the rodeo and saw my aunt and uncle and their new house. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is the wild, wild West.

  1. Nice job, Reo! You've really set a purpose for your learning. I can't wait to find out why the prison is named Alcatraz. Also, I don't have a lot of background knowledge on Custer's Last Stand, so I'll be looking forward to your West Jiurnal 2 and the information you find on it!

    Keep on truckin', partner.
