About Diane Tribitt:
Diane Tribitt, Minnesota's Cowgirl Poet, is a rancher from Hillman, Minnesota. She also runs a construction crew that erects grain bins across the United States, and has served on the rodeo circuit for many years as an events secretary. Diane brings this wealth of experience to every poem she writes. But the special feelings that her works evoke is also rooted in a deep spirituality and faith that comes from years of hard work in the open air, the special love of family and friends, and devastating losses that raise the question of what life is really all about.
Diane loves crossing trails with other poets, musicians and audiences as she travels to various cowboy gatherings.
Diane was a featured poet at the 24th Annual National Cowboy Poetry Gathering. Her poetry is featured on the 2007 edition of The BAR-D Roundup. She was the Senior Executive Editor of I.M. Cowgirl magazine and is the creator of CowboyLegacy.org.
