Cowboy Poetry from Alpine, Texas

Gather in Alpine Feb. 18-19, 2022 or watch our film

Keeping the Tradition Alive — 81 Minutes of Poetry and Music

Our first film showcases poetry from Joel Nelson and music by Dale Burson, R.W. Hampton, Randy Huston, and Rod Taylor, all working cattlemen filmed on ranches in West Texas and New Mexico. These are not stage performances. Between songs and poems, the participants talk directly with each other or with filmmakers John and Erika Moore about topics near to their hearts: horse training, becoming cowboys, horse wrecks, finding water, and living a life outdoors.
