About this title


This is the latest in this series of books "Cowboy Poetry, Classic Rhymes." The other books "Cowboy Poetry Classic Rhymes by Bruce Kiskaddon" and "Cowboy Poetry Classic Rhymes by S. Omar Barker" were published in 1998. Bruce Kiskaddon was a cowboy. The common thread throughout his poetry was the cowboy life and his dedication to it. S. Omar Barker was a cowboy, a rancher, a scholar and a gentlemen. His skills as a Western author came naturally from his talent and background. Henry Herbert Knibbs was a scholar who aspired to be a Western writer and poet. There is no doubt that he put more research and thought into his writing than either Kiskaddon or Barker. He was not born into ranch life, but became a western writer through his great efforts. As a result he left a legacy of profound cowboy poetry for our pleasure. As Cowboy Miner Productions our purpose in republishing these writings is to preserve (where we can) those works that were accepted as the best of their times. They provide inspiration for our present day artists and set standards for our contemporary works.
