Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering is the granddaddy of all cowboy poetry events, recognized by the US Senate for its pioneering role in the preservation and revitalization of this important American tradition. In conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the event, this commemorative volume collects over 100 poems by various cowboy poets who have appeared at the gathering over the last three decades. In addition to poems that will make you laugh, sigh, or sit up straight in your saddle, the anthology features expressive photos, biographical head notes, artwork from the Folklife Centers archives, and illuminating sidebars on topics such as working cattle; life on the land; the relationship between cowboy poetry and song; gear and horses; and profiles of important poets from earlier times. A foreword by cowboy poet extraordinaire Baxter Black and an introduction give context both to the event itself and to cowboy poetry in general from the days of the trail drives in the nineteenth century to the lives of the hardworking men and women who still ranch and live on the land in the West today.
