A Cowboy Tradition: Poems From the Heart is about ordinary people who spent their lives living and working the land on the Camas Prairie. These poems are based on real people from the author's memories of growing up in Nezperce, Idaho and about family members who have passed on and left their stories in the author's care. Some of the characters like Charley are fictional, but could have very easily existed in the past. This is a tribute to all the vaqueros, Californios, buckaroos, and cowboys who are still out there working the herds in the traditional way. You are the folks keeping alive a way of life that is fast disappearing into folklore.


"Country Music created by Indian artists is in non-rhyming, four-line stanzas. It tells a simple, non-embellished story and gets done. This material strikes me as being in that style." — The Western Way
