About this title


Author of the comic rodeo novel Hey Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky?, irregular commentator on NPR, syndicated columnist, and the best-selling cowboy poet in the world now rounds up this hilarious collection of poetry and commentaries that have made him public radio's favorite left-handed former large animal veterinarian.

Veterinarian-turned-poet/columnist/raconteur Baxter Black has been making people laugh since his days of doctoring livestock. Now heard and read regularly around the country via his radio and television appearances and hailed by readers for his self-published poetry books, Baxter has left a trail of laughter in his wake.  

Cactus Tracks & Cowboy Philosophy is the complete illustrated collection of his commentaries that have aired on NPR's Morning Edition.  It is the latest dose of the best medicine from this former animal doctor with the wit and soul of a salty sagebrush Shakespeare.


Baxter Black, a veterinarian turned writer/troubadour/raconteur and periodic commentator on National Public Radio, has produced a collection of his best anecdotes, songs, poems, and wisdom from the range. "My world is one in which people have lots of wrecks," he reports in Cactus Tracks. "Cow wrecks; horse wrecks; financial wrecks; flood, fire, and drought wrecks. Laughing at our 'wrecks' seems to make the tribulations of our lifestyle easier to handle." Here is the complete collection of his commentaries from NPR's Morning Edition. With subjects ranging from naked wrangling to life lessons ("When our opinions get as immovable as a granite outhouse, God has a way of shaking the foundation"), Baxter drops his reader-listener right into the prickly heart of things.
