KIRKUS REVIEW

This for those who graduate from the picture rodeo book (see P. 426), for here is the straight stuff about the business end and the working end of a rodeo, the proper procedures for saddle and bareback brone riding, roping, both plain and fancy, wild cow milking, cutting horse contests, steer wrestling, brahma bull riding, and so on. Professional as against amateur standing; the cowboy's and the promoter's ""take"", the history and origin of rodeo events and customs- all are discussed by an experienced writer on western background, practically born on a horse in the Badlands of South Dakota. He has also done the 60 lively drawings which make this a good gift item for boys.
