    I don;t think it has to be west of the Mississippi river. It has to be in the Wild West, ie pioneers, cowboys, trappers, indians. In a certain time they were east of the Mississippi river too, when Illinois was just a wild territory. My western story happens East of Mississippi (ie around Mississippi river) around the Louisiana Purchase and little afterwards, when it was still Wild West there.

    Research IS a must. Travelling there, isn't. Many German writers who wrote Westerns weren;t in the US. Other Europeans can't either.
