A blog about Cowboy Music, Western Swing and Cowboy Poetry. 2014 WMA Radio DJ/Radio Program of the Year

Stuart HookerI had the privilege of visiting with Stuart Hooker, Cowboy Poet, from up the road.  From me anyway.  He was born in Silver City, NM and raised on a ranch at Bear Creek, just northwest of there.  So…we’re almost neighbors. Stuart started writing poetry years ago but just recently published his first book.  Stuart has written poems about a variety of things that happen in a cowboy’s life.  There will be something there that jumps out and gets you. I think my favorite is “All My Cowboys Were Girls.”  But the one that brought back the most memories is “Bringin’ In A Dogie,”  I can just picture my daddy on Sonny with a dogie calf across the saddle in front of him.  He was such a good horse.  I’m sure your memories will be different than mine…but you’ll find a poem that strikes home.  These poems are about the real deal.

You can order a book at http://xlibris.com. Log on and click on “Bookstore.”  It’s available in paperback, hardback and e-book.  You’ll be glad you did.  You can also find more information about Stuart Hooker on http://cowboypoetry.com.
