Thoughts From The Saddle: A Cowboy's Musings by Barney Cissell Book Review

More Details and Ordering Instructions on Amazon


This is the first time I have experienced cowboy poetry. I have always loved western cinema and cowboy tales but have never read cowboy poetry until now. I have to say, after reading this book I am thoroughly enchanted by this genre. The poetry has an air of contemplation and brings forth the emotions of everyday life along the range. There are a couple of poems which stand out. One being A Cowboy's Heart which speaks to love and loss with an emphasis on healing. It is beautifully styled and explores the intricacies of the heart. Another is Dad's Ol' Boots which personally gripped at my heart, bringing back memories of my own father.

This book is filled with life and love and told with a contemplative voice that sets the stage for a wonderful calm and introspective read.

I highly recommend this book.
