Bruce Kiskaddon (1878-1950) is America's premier cowboy poet. Far from any Hollywood image, his poems, which were written for cowboys, have a ring of truth that makes them accessible to everyone.
Rhymes of the Range is illustrated with drawings by Katherine Field, Kiskaddon's original illustrator.
Hal Cannon was the first director of the Western Folklife Center in Elko, Nevada, and founder of the Elko Cowboy Poetry Gathering. He lives in Salt Lake City.
