Overview

If Louis L'Amour or Zayne Grey had written cowboy poetry this is what it would have looked like! These are real stories of strong men, and even stronger women, their lives, loves, and adventures back in the American West. Start with "The Shootist", a story about a sharpshooter, John Robert Smith, and the one woman in the territory who can do him better. Or, "Montana". A story, sure to become a classic in American narrative poetry, that tells the amazing life story about a young cowboy who loses his parents in an indian raid, then becomes a deputy sheriff, and eventually a major cattle rancher. How about "A Tribute to Nat Love" - a tribute to one of the greatest African American cowboys to ever live? Or, "Katie Elder" who takes down three desperate bank robbers with her six gun? These are just a small taste of what's inside - and the stories, together with twenty four archive photos from the period, are like nothing you've ever read before! Author Marshal T. Justice writes narrative poetry like nobody else around, and often you'll never notice that the story you're reading is also a narrative poem. Hold on to your Stetson hats, there Cowboys and Cowgirls! This here is narrative poetry like you've never seen it before!
