Publishers Description
From time to time, a towering figure emerges from America's heartland to dramatically change the way people think and feel. Such a man is cowboy poet, Ray Meyers who owns a homespun wisdom and inimitable way with words. Meyers? poetry is an honest look into the heart and heritage of the American cowboy, past and present. It's all here, adventure, danger, intrigue, yes, even romance?and you won?t need a translator to understand these stories. Told in simple, everyday language, the poems will stay with you long after you close the book. There is a common thread; the dependence on the power of hope. The author is a master story-teller who brings to life colorful characters, personifies good and evil, and paints the prairie life with haunting beauty and imagery. Of Legends in Frozen Time will keep you turning page after page as these stories praise the dignity of a cowboy's hard, often back-breaking work; as they honor hearth and home, love and family; and as they recognize the value of good hearty laughter.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Revealing a cowboy's yearning for wide-open spaces  Mar 9, 2005
Cowboy Poetry: Of Legends In Frozen Time is a showcase compilation of the poetry of Ray Meyers, a man who was born, raised, and lives on the same ranch in Carroll County, Iowa, that his grandfather has settled in 1867. An avid fan of cowboy poetry, Ray Meyers raises shorthorn cattle, and quarter horses making him as authentic a cowboy poet has could ever be asked for. With lyrical verse (some of which are of epic quality) revealing a cowboy's yearning for wide-open spaces, starlit nights, and independence, Cowboy Poetry is populated with memorable characters and a prairie life of memorable beauty and illuminating imagery. There are even a few black/white photos and some cowboy recipes! Cowboy Poets: How are cowboy poets made?/They don't suddenly just appear,/Now I can't speak for all the rest;/But this is what happened here.//My teachers name was Isaia,/This old sister really had wit,/Her off-time hobby was yodeling;/She taught me poetry in Sophomore Lit.//Soon I'd chosen a favorite poet,/Now he wrote in the sixteenth century,/His words were an intrigue with thoughtful depth;/As he told us of early gentry.//The robes he wore would seem strange to us,/He was no cowboy so don't fear;/He wrote poems of kingdoms and romance;/His "Nom-de-plum" was William Shakespeare.//Years progressed and I gained experience,/From the laughter and tragedy of life;/"You should write a book with all your stories."/Was the suggestion of my wife.//I consistently read in the Cattle Country News,/The stories by Mad Jack Hanks,/He wrote stories and poems, He did cartoons too./Mad Jack I extend you my thanks.//I was inspired while reading Cowboy Poetry,/That was authored by T. L. Bush./So I put my stories to rhythm and rhyme:/My leap of faith was really a push.//But the poet whom I most respected,/Whose words flowed and never went slack;/And he wrote many stories of cowboy ways:/ He's the poet called Baxter Black.//That pretty well tells the story of how,/A cowboy poet grew midst Iowa corn;/He went from reading to writing in rhythm and rhyme:/And that's how this poet was born. Keep your rope coiled, Cowboy Poet, Ray Meyers.
