Poetry of the African-American Cowboy
A selection of stories from the African-American history of Nebraska have been put to rhyme as only cowboy poetry can be presented. Harris draws from her research to share stories and poems of love, adventure, and respect, often with a bit of humor. Those who have already heard the stories told in “African-American Homesteaders and Cowboys of Nebraska” will especially enjoy this program of history in the rhythm and romance of the range.
