Creator: Barbara Bockelman
Quantity: 1 inch
This collection consists of Barbara Bockelman’s cowboy poetry, an unpublished manuscript titled “A Permanent Home,” and an assortment of articles.
Growing up on a ranch in Oklahoma inspired Barbara Bockelman’s poetry. In 1989, after raising a family and earning her bachelor’s degree, Bockelman began writing poetry that reflected her ranching experiences. She spoke at regional cowboy poetry events and schools hoping to preserve the stories of the ranching industry and its importance to the American West.
