Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Part memoir, part how-to, all Baxter Black, Lessons from a Desperado Poet is a humorous, witty take on making a living by doing the right thing and trying everything. According to Baxter Black, success “does not require a genius; it just requires the persistence of a glacier. Remember, often its not ability that gets you ahead, its reliability. The world is run by those who show up.”

 

Lessons from a Desperado Poet leaves a trail of self-improvement and motivational tortilla crumbs that readers will follow with delight—before, that is, squirreling them away in their own cerebral pockets for later use.

Synopsis:

A mind-tickling romp through the formation, fermentation, and fruition of the authors career as a poet in a country where publishing poetry is “practically illegal,” Lessons from a Desperado Poet boldly injects a poem now and again when it is relevant, just to prove a point! 

About the Author

Baxter Black is known to millions for his insights as America’s Cowboy Poet and as a large-animal veterinarian. He would still be a practicing vet if, in his words, “cowboy poetry had not hijacked my life.” His books include The Back Page: The Best of Baxter Black from Western Horseman, and Hey, Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky?
