Cowboy Entertainer/Storyteller/Cowboy Poet/WesternHistorian/Lecturer/Announcer
Writer/One heck of a windmill man

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.

Over the last few years, Larry has had to juggle 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 can also be found acting as an announcer or Master of Ceremonies for Rodeos, Parades, Mounted Shooting Competitions, Film Festivals or singing the National Anthem for the opening of a major sports event.

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. Click Here for school information

Larry has hosted two television specials for FOX in conjunction with the Reno Rodeo, and his one man show, "Cowboy, The Spirit, The Lore, The Legacy", continues to keep him traveling around the country. 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 west

Larry 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.
