CHASING THE RODEO (Harcourt Trade Publishers, $25.00)

chasing-rodeoI just love this type of history! What a read!

Cowboys are the icon of Western Americana, and rodeos are pure Cowboy ropin’, stompin’, buckin’ American sporting competitions. Stratton begins with his own childhood rodeo stories and moves through the various rodeo venues, including Cheyenne, Prescott and Oklahoma City. Along the way, he conjures up old memories such as a great movie called Junior Bonner and recounts legends like Larry Mahan, with a style that puts the reader in the moment of each and every tale. Chasing the Rodeo is legendary reminiscence at its best.
