Stories, Songs and Sodbusters with Bill Rossiter @ Riverton Branch Library
May 12 @ 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Stories, Songs and Sodbusters with Bill Rossiter @ Riverton Branch Library | Riverton | Wyoming | United States

Join educator and songster Bill Rossiter for a presentation infused with music,  Stories, Songs and Sodbusters.  Rossiter uses stories and yarns to share stories of homesteaders, following a dream, who went west and stayed.  Braving the “Great American Desert” with hand tools and a bucket of hope, they sang about the land of milk and honey. By the time they’d settled on their claims their songs included lyrics about alkali water, grasshopper plagues, chickens with the pip, leaky sod huts and coyotes at the door.
