In his cramped and cluttered Castaic trailer, Les Buffham employs an old Hills Bros. can to make a mild "buckaroo brew"--coffee, that is--and takes sugar in it, something he concedes is for sheepherders, not real cowboys. But his coffee pretty much describes the 50-year-old trucker: sweet and mild.

Les Buffham hasn't broken a horse in a good long while, but the rancher's son with the echo of a lonesome coyote in his voice hasn't forgotten the cowboy way. "I remember those times, you know. Some of them weren't so good, but it's always fun to talk about them," said Buffham, who is among the cowboy poets appearing at Santa Clarita's sixth annual Cowboy Poetry and Music Festival, beginning Thursday.

In search of its roots and an identity, Santa Clarita has turned to cowboy poetry. The five-year-old city, best known for housing developments and a neighboring theme park, announced that it will hold a three-day festival in March celebrating the poetry and music of the cowboys and vaqueros. "There is some real history in this soil; it's not just new developments," said Cecilia Burda, who is coordinating the Cowboy Poetry, Music and Film Festival. "This was once big ranching country."
