About Larry Maurice...
Larry Maurice has spent the last thirty five years as a Cowboy, horse wrangler and packer in the Eastern Sierra and the high deserts of Nevada.You're likely to find him leading a string of mules into the back country, on a horse drive in the Owens Valley of California, or working with Longhorn cattle in Virginia City, Nevada. Larry juggles his need to be on horseback with his busy entertainment schedule. A sought after entertainer, not only for his Cowboy Poetry that speaks from the heart of the day to day Cowboy, but also for his ability to breathe life into the history of the American West.

He is an exceptional after-dinner speaker and spends a great deal of time in schools around the country talking to children about the role the Cowboy has played and continues to play in the development of the west. Through poetry, song and stories, Larry is able to transport his audience back in time, allowing them to experience the cattle drives, characters and critters of the old westLarry has been honored with the "Lifetime Achievement in Cowboy Poetry Award"  from the prestigious National Cowboy Symposium in Lubbock,Texas. In July of 2000, Larry received the Academy of Western Artists coveted "Will Rogers Cowboy Award" for Cowboy Poet of the Year. Larry has been a "Lone Pine" regular since the festival's beginning in 1989 providing guidance, support and friendship throughout the years.

However, hidden within the rocks, there is another, often overlooked, natural treasure, the arches of the Alabama Hills.
