Ranchin is... align=

Veteran photographer and cowboy poet Mike Logan's lifelong interest in ranch life has spurred him to capture his observations on film and in verse.    Mike grew up in Kansas but adopted Montana as his home state in 1968 and remains there today. A high school teacher for 25 years, Mike retired in 1991. A passion for trout fishing led him to a new career as a wildlife photographer; a companion career writing cowboy poetry evolved soon after. Mike's keen insight and expansive western spirit have won him national acclaim, both as a featured poet and emcee at The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada, and as a guest on John Denver's 1991 "Montana Christmas Skies" television special. Author of numerous books and recognized in 2006 as the Will Rogers Male Cowboy Poet of the Year, Mike has appeared on TV and traveled the country sharing his enthusiasm and creative interpretations of life in the West. His words and photographs have also been published in numerous books, magazines, and calendars.  After more than fifty years in the Treasure State, the southeast Kansas native still tells his two sons, Mark and Sean, that he envies them growing up in Montana.
