Cowboy Poetry: A Gathering

Cowboy Poetry: A Gathering Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Most cowboy poems speak of real events and people, from bucking horses and cagey cows to old Stetson hats and long winter travels. Although they focus on the ordinary stuff of life, their truths . . . seem no less eternal than those penned by William Shakespeare. Some cowboy poems are but-a-gut funny; a few are downright dirty . . . most carry an honest, primitive power." --Michael Riley, TIME Magazine

Synopsis:

This collection of poems was chosen from among 10, 000 gathered from cowboy reciters, ranch poets and from a library of over 200 published works of cowboy verse. One third of the poems are classics that have proven their vitality by having lived in the hearts and minds of cowboys and ranchers for decades. The remaining two-thirds are new, created within the last few years.

Synopsis:

Truly a western classic, Cowboy Poetry is the definitive collection of the genre. Hal Cannon, famed for his own writing and poetry, edits this collection of some of the most enduring and essential cowboy poetry ever written. Comprised of classic material gathered from ranch poets, cowboy reciters, and published works — and of the exciting new poetry and prose of the last few years.
