Assuming such noted Cowboy Poets as these are also adept at self-editing, for this assemblage they have chosen what they feel is some of the best from their respective bodies of work. Let’s put it this way. If it’s not, it’s close enough!

The poets grouped here are known to be observant, empathetic, actual livers of the life. They have that solid ability to make you smell the sage and feel the breeze. And this book’s title is appropriate, in that they are at the top of the game and each a winning hand.

Each section is prefaced with biographical sketches (providing the pedigree) and at the head of each poem are notes from the author on its inspiration. You come to know many aspects of the life and the Glossary Of Terms is particularly valuable even outside of the context here.

Seekers of poetic formatting variety may note that these thoughts are presented predominantly in quatrains…the Beards being the principal exceptions. But from there, the Western sky’s the limit! Lavishly illustrated with photos, most historic, many in color. Seventy-six poems on 218 pages. Highly recommended.
