The skills needed to be a crackerjack cowboy elude Cowboy Slim. Much as he tries to rope and ride, his true talent is his creative power. Not so good at maneuvering stray cows, he engages with the big sky and the world around him: he's a budding poet. With his Western twang and dropped word endings, Ed Sala carries listeners right to the WJ Ranch. His timing and articulation make a clear differentiation between moments of poetry and moments of cattle rustling. Slim, while despondent at times, is imperturbable when crisis arises and thrilled when his help with words makes a difference. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
