But the largest part of the book is an anthology of poems by some of the finest cowboy poets anywhere, and they all happen to be in Georgia.As celebrated cowboy-poet Doris Daley— of Turner Valley, Alberta, Canada —says in the preface, “everywhere is west of somewhere.” So settle in, and travel with Fillingim to someplace west of wherever you are, and enjoy this unique combination of shrewd scholarly analysis and heartwarming cowboy poetry.
