2006 Cowboy Poetry Gathering
Workshops and performances at the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada. During the week, various workshops including rawhide braiding, poetry writing, livestock nutrition and cooking workshops were held. The cooking workshops were geared towards celebrating the culture of some of the special guests including the Fisher Poets. They are fisherman who write poetry and share it in in much the same vain as the cowboys. They brought salmon, crab and other delicacies from the sea. Also, Argentine Gauchos prepared a traditional Gaucho Barbecue with a lamb cooked outside on an open pit surrounded by corrugated metal.
