About the Author

BAXTER BLACK is an NPR commentator whose syndicated column appears in more than 100 newspapers. He appears regularly on television and radio and at dozens of agricultural functions and the occasional urban gathering. He will not let himself be described as Americas best-loved cowboy poet, but will agree to be referred to as the tallest, scrawniest, most left-handed one. He lives in Arizona among the catclaw and Gila monsters.
