Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

4 X 6 1/2 In, 176 Pp, Black & White Illustrations These Recent Works Are From America's Best Cowboy and Cowgirl Poets, Most of Whom Are Regular Participants In Local Cowboy Poetry Gatherings and In The Granddaddy Gathering Held Each January In Elko, Nevada. Included Here Are Some of The Best-Known Poets, Such As Waddie Mitchell, Wally McRae and More, Who Breathe Reality Into The Myth of The Ranching Life. Cowboy Poetry Is A Cultural Phenomenon That Continues To Spread Like Wildfire Across The Country.

Synopsis:

Whether you consider yourself a real cowpoke or a western romantic, you are going to enjoy this batch of new cowboy poems. Reading them aloud, it's easy to get caught up in the spirit of the West. You can almost hear the creak of saddle leather, smell the aroma of chuck wagon coffee, and feel the glow of a mellow campfire beneath a starry desert sky. Here is a first-rate sampling of the best cowboy poetry being written today. The poets in this collection hail from all over the West--California, Montana, Texas and everywhere in between. Some of them have been seen on the "Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson, and all have recited their works at the granddaddy of the gatherings, the annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada.
