From Booklist:

Cowboy poems have walked and cantered and now gallop toward national popularity as the rejuvenation of a century-old High Plains oral tradition. Sixteen prominent reciters, of their own verses or classics by Bruce Kiskaddon, appear in this album, a beautifully proud celebration, and occasionally a cold-eyed appraisal, of the hazardous, rough life of men on horseback. Editors Cannon and West orchestrate a multimedia medley of printed poems, portraits of the cowboy personality (in tens of photographs and watercolors), quiet panoramas of the lonely rangeland, and, to spark the imagination, a CD of stories and song. (The CD contains the same poets featured in text, but gives voice to works that are not in the text.) The physical object, the book, is simply handsome, rhythmical, even inspirational--if cowpokes git a mind to giddyap to Elko, Nevada, site of the annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering, where much of the sound was recorded. So dismount, get some coffee from the trail wagon, amble over to the campfire, and listen to Buck Ramsey, J. B. Allen ("the most original and authentic voice . . . today"), Teresa Jordan, and their fellows laud a hard, beleaguered, but mythic way of life. Gilbert Taylor
