A Red Dashboard LLC Publication–In the untamed lands of the Old West, mystery and excitement were not for the weak heart’d; it wasn’t always a bright sunny day to take on the journeys ahead. Men and Women, and children rode the hardened trails through harsh winters, barren desserts, and still found their hunger was strong as ever, for adventure and a new life. Within this book many in today’s modern life find writing about a life from the past still has adventure. Cowboy poets keep the oral traditions alive—from riding the trails, pasture to pasture, as the herd graze, doggies and horses alike with the breeze across their backs, give satisfaction to the ranch hands and readers alike. Follow the chuck-wagons as they follow, keeping a hot pot of coffee ready; biscuits, eggs, bacon, and beans rise up on the morning air. Tie up your bed-roll, and mount the steed, who are pals to their riders. Come and journey with us as writers and poets keep the Old Wild West live and kickin’. —Editing staff, Red Dashboard LLC Publications Cowboy Poetry Press (cowboypoetrypress.com) Winner, 2015 Western Writers Award Winner, 2016 Will Rogers Medallion Award
