Dan O'Canna wrote a little about Cowboy Poetry and wrote one of my favorite
poems, Reincarnation, by Wallace McRae.
If you are interested in Cowboy Poetry, one of the best books I can recommend
is Cowboy Poetry, A Gathering, edited by Hal Cannon. The poems in this book
were collected from over 200 sources and it contains not only classics like
Reincarnation, and Strawberry Roan by Curley Fletcher, but also several newer
poems reflecting the 1980's.
I carry dog-eared copies of this and Robert Service with me in my truck, and
often at campouts I read aloud during the campfire. It can be magic out in
the open under the stars, especially if the coyotes do their job and sing a
song or two.
