Cowboy poet visits Plumas in support of museum
As a benefit for the Plumas County Museum, nationally known Cowboy Poet of the Year Larry Maurice will appear Friday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m. at Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch, 11 miles east of Quincy.
Maurice has spent the last 20 years as a cowboy, horse wrangler and packer in the Eastern Sierra and the high deserts of Nevada. You’re likely to find him leading a string of mules into the back country, on a horse drive in the Owens Valley of California, or working with longhorn cattle in Virginia City, Nev.
Over the last few years, Maurice has had to juggle his need to be on horseback with his busy entertainment schedule. He is a sought-after entertainer, not only for his cowboy poetry that speaks from the heart of the day-to-day cowboy, but also for his ability to breath life into the history of the American West.
This event is cosponsored by Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch, the Plumas County Museum Association and Poets & Writers as a fundraiser for the Plumas County Museum.
