May 8, 2018 • Page 4 shop online at www.missourivalleyshopper.com New Edition Of Badger Clark’s Most Popular Volume Published 1101 PIERRE, S.D. – The latest edition of cowboy poet Badger Clark’s most popular volume has just been published by the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation. “Sun and Saddle Leather” has been in continuous print since it was first published in 1915. The volume contains two of Clark’s most popular poems, “Ridin’” and “A Cowboy’s Prayer.” Western photos from the South Dakota State Historical Society-Archives were used to illustrate the new edition of “Sun and Saddle Leather.” Financial support was provided by the South Dakota Arts Council and the Clarkson Family Foundation. “Cowboys said of Clark’s poems that ‘his words rang true.’ Clark’s tales of the open range and the West still ring true, 100 years after they were first published,” said foundation president Catherine Forsch. “The new GILBERTS SALE YARD MACHINERY CONSIGNMENT SALE, JUNE 4, 9:00 A.M..

The foundation began overseeing the reprinting and distribution of work by Clark in 2015. Clark was born on Jan. 1, 1883, in Albia, Iowa. He and his family moved to Dakota Territory when he was three months old. After being diagnosed with tuberculosis at age 23, Clark went to Arizona and was hired on a cattle ranch near Tombstone. Clark put his feelings of enjoying the open range and his fascination with cowboys into poems, many of which he sent to his stepmother. She sent a poem called “Ridin’” to Pacific Monthly magazine, which paid $10 to Clark when it was published. Clark began sending poems to Pacific Monthly and other magazines on a regular basis. Clark’s stepmother is also said to have encouraged her stepson to write a poem reflecting the cowboy religion. The result was “A Cowboy’s Prayer.” Clark returned to the Black Hills in 1910. “Sun and Saddle Leather,” Clark’s first volume of poetry, was published in 1915. It was followed by “Grass Grown Tales.” The two volumes were subsequently gathered into one book under the title “Sun and Saddle Leather.” Clark was named South Dakota’s poet laureate in 1937, a title he held until his death 20 years later. “Sun and Saddle Leather” and other works by Clark are available from the foundation by calling 605-773-6346 or at the website www. sdhsf.org. Older Americans Month: Engage at Every Age Written by Bethany Stoutamire under the direction and review of Leacey E. Brown. May is the month of new flowers, mothers, and…older Americans? That’s right, this month is Older Americans month and this year’s theme to Engage at Every Age. In honor of this year’s theme, here are five fun ways you can be active and engaged this month. Visit a State Park and Go Fishing! The weekend of May 18-20, the Department of Games, Fish, and Parks is hosting the annual open house weekend, where there are no entrance fees to enter the park and you don’t need a license to fish! You have lots of state parks to choose from. Celebrate National Pizza Party Day! The third Friday of every month is National Pizza Party Day (One fun way to celebrate may be to get together with friends, where each person bakes a different type of pizza and exchange the recipes with each other. You can also try to make homemade pizzas with the young children in your life. Even if you’re watching what you eat, you can try some of a healthy pizza crust or some of our other healthy pizza recipes. However, you can always celebrate the old fashioned way by going out to a pizza joint with friends and family. Take a Class! Check out your local library, community center, local craft or hardware store to see if they offer any classes for a skill you would like to develop more. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, online platforms like YouTube and Coursera may have what you’re looking for. Volunteer! Platforms like Volunteer Match and Volunteer Helpline can help you find a volunteer opportunity in your area. Volunteering is not only a great way to give back to the community, but can also help you meet others who share your interests and values and can also be good for your health. Visit a Farmer’s Market! In South Dakota, many farmer’s markets have their opening weekend in May. Visiting a farmer’s market is a great way to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, support local business, and maybe find a locally made gift for someone this Mother’s Day. If you’re able too, you could also ride your bike to the market, since May is also National Bike Month.
