audiences of all ages spellbound with her
animated style of song and poetry;
and, with deep ancestral roots in this state's storied past,
she's truly a daughter of the Arizona soil."

I always get the distinct feeling that Dee is
living and reliving her life and her passion for
the West as she delivers one of her poems or songs.
Always vibrant! Always fresh!"
. . . Dolan Ellis

Your book and tape will be kept with my other treasures."

for Dee's cowboy trail has history, laughs and tears, twists
and turns, secrets and surprises, bucking beginnings and
jolting endings -- ride alert!"
. . . Katie Burdette, MC

accomplished guitar, and huge repertoire of songs for many
years....As you listen to her work, you'll find a depth that
surpasses words and gets right to the heart..."

"A plucky little gal from Mesa Del
Who loves cowboys and words that rhyme
Wrote tales of the range and western campaigns
That were named the best of our time."

"Dee Strickland Johnson is quite talented as an illustrator
also. . . many of her drawings brighten the pages of her
book. In "Morning in the High Hills" she ponders, "I just
can't quite seem to fathom -- I just can't help wondering
why I was placed amongst such beauty -- all this solitude
and sky." Having read and enjoyed her poetry, I know
why. She was sent to her beloved American West to sing
its praises and chronicle the life of the folks who ranch,
dance and live there."
. . . Patricia Bamford-Merewether,
Yippy Yi Yea Magazine

"Buckshot Dot (Dee Strickland Johnson) is one of the
finest performers that I've had the pleasure to meet...
