  The BAR-D Roundup  is the perfect Christmas gift for everyone on your list!  

The CD is a compilation of contemporary recordings of some of today's best classic and contemporary cowboy poetry. It includes Texas Poet Laureate Red Steagall's "Born to this Land"; Buck Ramsey’s first recording of "Anthem," from the recent book and recording from Texas Tech University press, Buck Ramsey's Grass, with essays on his life and work; “What’s Become of the Punchers?” by Jack Thorp, America’s first collector of cowboy music and poetry, recited by Mark L. Gardner, from the recent book and recording from New Mexico Museum Press, Jack Thorp's Songs of the Cowboys; "The Greatest Sport," by the well-loved octogenarian poet and working cowboy, Cowgirl Hall of Fame inductee Georgie Sicking, from the recent documentary about her, Ridin' & Rhymin' from Far Away Films; "What Would Martha Do?," by Yvonne Hollenbeck, named "the most popular cowboy poem of 2005" by Western Music Association (WMA) disk jockeys; treasures from two masters, lost recently, and too soon: "Johnny Clare," by Larry McWhorter and "Change on the  Range," by Sunny Hancock, recited by Chris Isaacs; and many other selections from contemporary poets reciting their own works and the classics.
