The start of this book corresponded with the increasing interest in rodeo as a media attraction. People were ready to hear from cowboys and cowgirls twenty to forty years after they’d competed in arenas around the country and RODEO STORIES II capitalizes on that popularity.
Their effort is clearly seen because of the authority from which they stake their claim to tell their unique stories. They were there.
There were young sunburned faces against old wooden chutes. There was laughter out back of the arena when the competition was over. There was excitement, fun, and humor, and there was blood, sweat, and pain. RODEO STORIES II provides a voice from the hearts of cowboys and cowgirls who competed in those arenas. These are their stories in their own words.
