Echo Klaproth is a 4th generation Wyoming rancher who began writing to pay tribute to the unique heritage her family has enjoyed since 1876 raising livestock on ground homesteaded by their great-grandparents in northeast Wyoming.
Over the years, she’s published chapbooks, “fine lines’ from 20 years of cowboy poetry gatherings, as well as a CD of original and classic poetry. Her latest work, Words Turn Silhouette is a memoir and study of the many and varied cycles of women’s lives.

Echo and her husband live on a small farm near Shoshoni, Wyoming. After retiring from teaching, she was ordained a minister and serves as Chaplain with a non-profit hospice organization. This WYOPoet and Wyoming Writer believes poetry has served as the impetus to get her to the place God intended for her all along: to serve Him by encouraging others in their walks in life with words—both written and spoken.
