Sun and Saddle Leather CD

25.00

We are pleased to offer a special 22 track CD of songs and recitations recorded live at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada from 1985 - 2015, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of Charles Badger Clark's "Sun and Saddle Leather," a humble book of western verse published in 1915 that quickly became a classic and has since helped define the genre of American cowboy poetry. Badger Clark may be best known (nowadays) for writing "A Cowboy's Prayer," a work that became so popular and widespread that Clark's authorship was largely forgotten—the poem was often credited to "Anonymous." CD includes a 24page booklet that contains an essay about Charles Badger Clark written by Elaine Thatcher, as well as words to all the poems as published by Clark between 1915 and 1922.CD provides over 74 minutes of Clark's best loved works as performed by:
