Paul Zarzyski
Photographs by Barbara Van Cleve

"Zarzyski, the best of the best, includes over thirty poems . . . which truly showcase his life and soul . . . (and) along with photographs by Barbara Van Cleve capture the grit of the rodeo lifestyle."— Cowboys and Indians


Montanan Paul Zarzyski is a former bareback rider. He now writes full time and has performed his work at the Library of Congress, Festival Hall in London, and numerous other grand venues. His six books and chapbooks include The Make-Up of Ice and I Am Not a Cowboy.

Barbara Van Cleve is the author of Hard Twist: Western Ranch Women (Museum of New Mexico Press). A Montana native, her roots reach back to the homesteading era in the West. A recent inductee into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame, her photographs of western landscape, ranching, and documentary subjects have won her an international reputation.
