Marty Tipton and the Cowboy Way
Los Angeles Interview
Marty Tipton is about as close as one can get to the
American cowboy of yore this side of the year 2000. And
while his cowboy hat and boots, and even his livelihood as
a professional trick roper add to this conception, the
similarities extend beyond the standard cowboy imagery.

his friendly Oklahoma twang that seem believable enough
but also carry with them a sense of the fantastic that
belongs in a dime novel. Continue reading.......

was probably Tipton. He has performed in just about
every type of venue imaginable. He has made crowds
laugh in everything from professional sports games to
the Broadway productions like the Will Rogers Follies. He
also can be seen regularly in city wide community
gatherings and cooperate banquets around the country.

When Marty was in his early grade school years he would walk to his
grandmothers house after school everyday. She would give him a treat
and tell him stories about growing up in the west. Delia rode in a wagon
across the largest county in Oklahoma called Osage from the Vinita area
to meet her husband Dale. Dale worked in the 101 Ranch Wild West Show
performing and training horses. Marty's grandmother also told him
stories about the Pawnee Bill Wild West Shows and her visits with Will
Rogers. One of her favorite sorties was about the unveiling of the
Pioneer Woman in 1930. She said Will had everyone rolling with laughter
when he commented about the Pioneer Woman having a girdle on the
prairie. After the unveiling of the statue Will and Delia had a picnic
together and she recalls him talking to her about the pickled watermelon
that was so popular. Delia received letters from Will over the years from
places he had visited around the world. One of the letters Marty recalls
her reading was about the Mississippi floods. Delia keep the letters at
her bedside in the dresser drawer tied with a ribbon till she passed away.

West shows. These skilled women toured the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, influencing
millions with their courage, determination, and independence. The women of the Wild West shows
represented idealized images of the past, but they were also agents of cultural change who challenged the
expectations of what women were capable of doing.

allowed her to become one of the first American women to be a "superstar".
