Cowboy Songs and Singers: Of Lifeways and Legends

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Karen Roche (Faculty), Nov 21, 2002
Comment: This site offers a wide range of information elegantly presented through various
forms of media. The site is uncluttered yet thorough. It includes selective
links for those interested in further study of the poetry and songs of the
American cowboy both past and present. Not only can we use the printed versions
of these authentic pieces of folk history, we are also treated to audio and
video readings and interviews that are easily accessed. The multi-media
presentations have been edited into bites requiring seconds to download, even
with my archaic dial-up Internet connection.
I give this site a five star rating in all three of the evaluation standards.
It's content is inclusive, authentic, and endearing: *****. As a teaching tool,
I will use it as reference, to elicit discussion, and (probably most important)
to introduce my 80's born students to these jewels of truly American poetry:
*****. There is a sigh of relief when the home page pops up. It is organized
with a main set of links down the side; this is the only navigation needed and
it anchors the pages together: *****. (I would have preferred the associated
links to connect as pop-up pages so the students did not stray from the main
site. Perhaps the authors can work on this one.)
