Arthur Peake first looked down on the meandering Red Deer River in 1897, and spent the next 50 years ranching there. Using the pen name Loco, he recorded observations of the country, the people and the events around him in singing rhymes. Twenty-five of his poems have been collected here, along with a short biography of his life by Cyndi Smith.
