Face to face, four against one
The cowboy looks to a rising sun.
Four crowns only, one breast shown,
Six old Indians sharing their home.
Father and author, keepers two,
Born of destruction, fourteen they grew.
Hard and heartless, indomitable wills,
The visions of titans encompass the hills.

Wow, way to go Grayven.
I see now how you nailed it, but the cowboys and Indians thing had me stumped at first.
Still an excellent puzzle Shake. Keep them coming.

Spoiler for Well, the first two lines did it...
It seemed so obvious, that I was sure I was wrong, in fact. Sorry... :(

I am still curious about the Indians though. I'm not that familiar with the details.

Thanks Grayven, but I just have to smack my head on this one. It could've been the best of the lot. I've since changed it and think it so now. I'm calling it the "Showdown Riddle."

Face to face, it’s four against one
As the cowboy sees a rising sun.
None are armed, one breast is shown,
Six old Indians gave them a home.
The father, the sheriff, the lawyer so true,
Another held feathers, for fourteen they grew.
Hard and heartless with indomitable wills,
Eyes of these heroes look to the hills.

Beautiful poem, Reminds me of
