About this title

Synopsis:

Cowboy Poetry Tales from her storied past

Review:

What a great idea! To present Arizona and her colorful stories in the form of rhyme and meter in order to make it "greasy easy" for folks of all ages to appreciate and remember. In my opinion, the most significant work that Dee Strickland Johnson has ever done. Not that her other works are not wonderful. They absolutely are, this book is bound to become a familiar sight in libraries and classrooms across our state. Muchas gracias,Dee, for sharing with all of us you love and devotion for the "herstory" and folklore of Arizona. --Dolan Ellis Arizona's Official Balladeer

In Arizona Herstory: Tales From Her Storied Past, Dee Strickland Johnson has used the lyrics of poetic imagery to relate the exciting, and often, little known accounts from Arizona's past. Topically divided into six chapters with each section focused on a broad chronological time frame, she skillfully blends history and the beauty of poetry to the advantage of each medium, creating a fascinating new look at Arizona's rich and varied history. --James McBride, Ph D Faculty Associate Department of History Arizona State University

Dee Strickland Johnson has gathered a lot of Arizona history and lore and interpreted it in carefully crafted rhyme. Reading Dee's poetry, I hear the same remarkable voices that she uses in her stage performances. Her sad, pensive voice tells of the hanging tree where 3 young men died unjustly. She is a master of comic dialect when she describes the antics of cowboys, outlaws, greenhorns and tin horns. I like sensitive way she represents the viewpoints of Hispanic and Native Americans. This remarkable book gives me a new feeling for my native state, and I'm not lyin'! --Jim Cook "Official State Liar of Arizona" Author of Arizona Liar's Journal
