Rodeo is a large part of the foundation on which North American cowboy mythology is based. This book of photographs, interviews and stories extends that mythology while giving the reader a working view of the rodeo circuit and how it functions. These photographs follow the rodeo cowboy from town to town, observing him on the road; ‘bronco riders’ and ‘buckle bunnies’; small town parades and rodeo queens; spectators and competitors are all a part of these pictures and dialogues. Norman Mauskopf traveled the rodeo trail for several years and the finest photographs are collected in this book.
