Description: Rhymes on the Range will take you into the life of genuine no-B.S. cowboys. These poems about actual happenings in the life of Canada's working cowboys. You will smell the stench of burning hair at the branding fire and welcome fragrance of coffee on a campfire during roundup. You'll hear the music of spurs jingling in stirrups, as a cowboy rides by and the call of a coyote as you drift off to sleep in your bedroll.
Too many people have messed up, attempting to define cowboy, so we won't. We just know we are, but we ain't sure why! This collection of poems and cartoons is our first attempt to share out little corner of the west. I hope you enjoy the view! We have to thank Hancock House for believing in us enough to publish this book and you for picking it up. We wish to dedicate this book to all the old timers and pioneers we've met along the way. Their B.S. stories are our greatest inspiration!
