SD Magazine features Fulton cowboy poet

Badger Clark is recognized as South Dakota's most successful cowboy poet, but there's a modern generation taking pen to paper on ranches across South Dakota. They are featured in the September/October 2012 issue of South Dakota Magazine.

Writer Linda Hasselstrom interviewed a dozen ranch bards, including Gale Patzlaff, of Fulton. Hasselstrom shares short excerpts from each writer's favorite poems and explains how they are keeping the cowboy poet tradition alive in South Dakota.

South Dakota Magazine is published in Yankton. It explores the history, arts, culture, sports and outdoors of the state.
