    I thought this book was very poetic. It had a lot of meaningful, well thought out, poems in it that were really nice. I would only recommend this book to someone who like poetry and who are in to western stuff, because if you don't like poems or western stuff you will hate this book.

    This is a pretty good short poem book. I had a couple favorites. I can really understand the poems because I can relate to them in a lot of ways.

    This is a great book of poems for young adults. Bailing Twine was one of my favorites. I recommend this book to non city folk.

    I read poems out of here because I figured I would relate to it. I really enjoyed these poems and hope to read some later on as well.
