Do Antelope Eat Cantaloupe? align=

People say Margaret Wilhelm, cowboy poet, sees life from a little different slant. After all, who else would write a tribute to her washing machine or an ode to the neighbor's goat? Margaret loves to laugh and hopes her contemporary poetry about ranch and rural life will produce a chuckle or at least a smile.

Margaret lived with her husband, Gary, on a ranch near White Sulphur Springs, Montana, where they raised angus cattle. She was the primary hired man on the place since their two daughters are grown and gone. To help out with the economic end of life, Margaret taught at the local high school. Ordinary or unusual events on the ranch, or the neighbors' ranches, provide the inspiration for most of her writing. More recently, however, she has researched some western history and written about interesting old characters.
