Race, Rodeo and the West

red-white-black-by-rick-steberRick Steber needs little introduction to many readers of True West.  The author of more than 30 books, Steber has long been fascinated with the establishment and evolution of the Pendleton Round-Up. In Red White Black: A True Story of Race and Rodeo, he takes us on a memorable ride, furnishing a well-illustrated tale he has long wanted to tell.

The main characters in this book, Jackson Sundown (Nez Perce), John Spain and George Fletcher also received attention in Pendleton Round-Up at 100: Oregon’s Legendary Rodeo. However, Steber’s “true story of race and rodeo” offers remarkable lead characters and portraits that cannot be painted too often or in too many ways.
