BILL GOMERSALL C.D. NOW AVAILABLE:

You heard him at Seniors’ Fun Day at the Centre of the Arts.

You saw him on the CBC National, and CTV’s Good Morning, Canada!

Maybe you met him at one of the hundreds of rodeos, fairs, horse sales or gatherings he attended in Saskatchewan before he died in 2006 at the age of 100.

Now you can get a Gomersall C.D. of his funniest stories and most dramatic poems. "WANTED: Bill Gomersall and the Mitchell Boys" was launched on Bill’s 100th birthday, part of Saskatchewan’s 2005 Centennial celebrations. It contains almost an hour of dazzling verbal entertainment from the cowboy campfire. Bill partners up with The Mitchell Boys, a pair of rowdy renegade poets from Moose Jaw. Bill tells campfire stories and recites classics like "The Face on the Bar Room Floor" or "A Prairie Heroine", with the background of Bob Evans’ guitar picking, and the music of the ranch country: cattle, coyotes and wind.

Great gift for old-timers, pioneers, and Saskatchewan characters!
Available for only $15.00 a copy, which will arrive by return mail. Make sure you include your postal address. The price includes GST and all postage and handling. Just send a cheque or money order to:

Books:

Rhyming Wranglers: Cowboy Poets of the Canadian West -
Selected by Ken Mitchell
$20.00

There is a cultural movement sweeping the Western plains like a prairie fire: cowboy poetry. In gatherings and festivals from Fort Qu'Appelle to Pincher Creek, from Maple Creek to Stony Plain (and beyond), cowboy poets are chanting the praises of the ranching culture as never before.

In "Rhyming Wranglers", you meet men who are 'double damn tough' and women who are even tougher. You will find plenty to laugh about from
"The Day Leonard taught me to chew snuff" by Denis Nagel, to Neil
Meili's "The Old Dry Guy and the Bath"
.

The whole spectrum of range life is presented; the clamour and danger of
a cattle stampede; the fragrant beauty of a prairie night; the unexpected loss of a loved one. And there's a lot of cowboy philosophy here too, from the no-nonsense creed of Robert Service's "The Quitter" to the subtler values of Sid Marty's deeply moving "The Rider with Good Hands".

"Rhyming Wranglers" includes not only poets form pioneer times, and the current stars of the cowboy poetry festival circuit, but such major outlaw poets as Sheri-D Wilson, Sid Marty and Corb Lund. You will find they all speak the authenitic lingo of the cowboy.
