If you're looking for a gorgeous book, see if you can get a copy of this one. The cowboy poems are wonderfully illustrated by Bernie Fuchs. Most of the poems are traditional rhyming poems that were written by men and women who work on cattle ranches in the western states. Unfortunately, this collection never got the promotion that I think it deserved. As a result, about 113 people--not including my family and friends--bought it. But it still is a satisfying combination of words and pictures.
