Elizabeth Ebert, known to some as the Queen of Cowboy Poetry, has passed away. The 93 year old spent most of her life near Lemmon, South Dakota. During her later years, she traveled the country to recite her poetry.
I recently visited with Elizabeth Ebert in her rural home. She shared her journey with cowboy poetry over a cup of coffee. Many of her memories were of the early days. She was a ten year old in South Dakota during the Great Depression.
