Clifford Etheredge was a farmer in West Texas for many years. Even after a farming accident took his right arm, he continued to farm. During this time he began to write poetry as a way to relax. Cliff likes to read and write and starting writing down his thoughts and poems. He feels they are profound and wanted them in print so that other people could enjoy them. He has published two books: A Hundred Years of Rattlesnake Hunting and Rhymes and Reasons. His autobiography will be available soon.
