On Tuesday, Feb. 16 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., local cowboy poets will be reciting poetry at the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum. This distinct flavor of poetry opens a window into the past when solitude and loneliness were a cowboys only companion.

Later in the week, the poets will participate in the Tenth Annual Mesquite Western Roundup. There will be two shows—Friday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 20 at 1 p.m. at the Mesquite Community Theatre.

Come listen to the joy, humor and history of a diminishing way of life.
