The 35th Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering moseyed back into town Aug. 10-12 to present another bonanza of talent in the form of more than 40 poets, musicians and storytellers reporting from the world of the working cowboy, most of whom are or have been a part of the working cowboy’s environment and workplace. Day and afternoon sessions with performances and discussions were spread across Yavapai College’s Prescott campus. Full evenings of entertainment were hosted all three nights at YC’s Jim and Linda Lee Performing Arts Center, headlined by musicians Trinity Seely and The Cowboy Way and poet Doris Daley. Awards were given, Coffee with the Cowboys was served, ranching history was celebrated and everyone left with a renewed appreciation for the western way of life.
