Men of the Open Range
And Other Poems

by Mike Logan

illustrations by Mike Logan

Men of the Open Range is the third book of cowboy poetry from Mike Logan, and his third book to open with a piece named after and inspired by a famed Charlie Russell painting. Like Charlie before him, Mike laments the progress that is steadily infiltrating his treasured Wild West, and many of the poems in Men of the Open Range rail against the movement to change “our high pure mountain valleys to somethin’ not so different from L.A. streets and alleys.” Logan applies his signature wit, warmth, and humor to create poems that are “studied, not so much in the academic sense, but in his intimate familiarity with the style, the techniques, and perhaps most importantly, the traditions of the West.”
