In his first poetry book, A Sweet Place to Play, Author Bob Frost compiled his collection of work from over thirty years. Cowboy Poems about the Old West and New is a collection of original poems the author wrote as he explored the west and rode with the Verde Vaqueros of Scottsdale, AZ. Bob tries to imagine what it must have been like in the old west. He wondered what they thought about and what humorous events might have taken place. Some of the poems are simple stories with a surprise humorous ending, while others take on a more serious pondering. In Chapter three he shares a different style in some of the poetry; some are more descriptive, others, metaphorical and even mystic.
Living in Scottsdale, Arizona for almost forty years has given the author close ties and interest in the old west as well as experience in the new. In addition to being a poet, he is an auctioneer, enjoys golf, fishing and music.
