Born and raised on a family ranch in the foothills of Alberta, Doris's authentic, sparkling poetry has taken her to campfires large and small, to highways, roundabouts and gravel roads throughout the west, and to concert appearances with the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, and the Saskatchewan Opera Company.
She is a favorite on cowboy poetry stages throughout the U.S. and Canada.
"If cowboy poetry was fresh milk and the cream that rises to the top was the very best, then Doris Daley would be very rich and very fattening."
— Waddie Mitchell, cowboy poet
"Doris Daley writes like Fanny Sperry Steele rode broncs: with skill and grace and a lot of class."
— Dave Stamey, singer/songwriter
"Doris's verbal paintbrush is as captivating and as visual as the paintings of Russell and Remington. If you want to know the West, listen to Doris Daley. Her gift is unique and her appeal is irresistible."
— Jack Hannah, Sons of the San Joaquin, Fresno, California
