Help Wanted: Need Capable Hands to Herd cattle, walk the property line, chores.
There was nothing abnormal in this type of help wanted ad. It was the same as nearly a dozen others that appear in papers and town bulletin Board across the western United States. However, what was strange was where the prospective employer was, Japan. That meant a very long and grueling voyage across the massive Pacific ocean. A venture that put off most if not all would be applicants. However one was willing.
The Setting is Late 1880's, Early 1890's. An Ex-Calvary scout turned ranch hands answers an add for a Ranch hand in the far eastern Land of Japan. This Idea was inspired two movies. "The Barbarian and the Geisha" with John Wayne, and "Quigley down under" with Tom Selleck.
I figure they would bump into each other as he comings into town and constantly meet. For example, the Master throws a party to welcome his new employee and the Geisha(s) were hired to entertain.
Looking for someone to play the part of the Geisha.
Please PM is if you are interested.
