#8 Keith Rounds: Cowboy Poetry

With a deep and abiding love for Cowboy culture, Keith Rounds got his start with Cowboy Poetry when he penned his first effort as a wedding anniversary gift to his lovely wife about 25 years ago. He is the author of The Ride: A Collection of Cowboy Poems.

Rounds is a Wyoming native whose work relies on experiences involving family ranches in his native rural southwest Wyoming, as well as important life passages. His roots on the range extend back to the 1840s, when his great grandparents settled in the Bridger Valley. In fact, his great grandfather was a Pony Express rider and is the subject of an epic poem composed by this exceptionally entertaining poet.

Now retired, Rounds currently works part time as the jovial, well-loved Doorman for the Wyoming House of Representatives.
