BC South Peace River Stockmen's Association

The Alberta Cowboy Poetry Association
Mike Puhallo was a widely published cowboy poet and was one of the very few cowboy poets in the world to actually make a big part of his living from his cowboy poetry. He is the only cowboy poet to have his work read into the official record at a NASA launch and in the Canadian House of Commons. Mike not only performed at cowboy gatherings and festivals, but also took his poetry into schools, libraries and community halls throughout the West. His poetry appeals to a broad audience, not just ranchers and working cowboys, and he wrote all of his own poems.
Dearly missed, Mike passed away June 24, 2011 but his poetry lives on.
