Michael and Dawn Moon of Colorado were featured performers at the 2007 National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, and their song, "Working for Dollars," expresses the ranching community's shared values of hard work, horsemanship, and love of the land - - values that transcend our political boundaries.

"Workin' For Dollars" is one of the songs included on Michael and Dawn's CD entitled Land of the Columbine. View this CD and other items in our online gift catalog, then give us a call at the Western Folklife Center Gift Shop to purchase.
