Write 'em up, read 'em out! Cowboy poets ride into Prescott

"Write 'em, Cowboy!" OK, maybe that's not what they meant in those Western movies you saw as a kid. But that's what they might be hollerin' when the 26th annual Arizona Cowboy Poets Gathering rolls into town Aug. 8-10. One of the longest-running cowboy poetry events in the West (where else?), this year's show is packed with the rock stars of the field and a local tradition that reaches back to Prescott's early days and local legend Gail Gardner.
