Overview

"Oklahoma Rough Rider recounts Billy McGinty's exploits on the battlefield and later on the stage. It contains his firsthand account of how he began cowboying at fourteen and went on to become a world champion bronco buster. After the Spanish-American War, he performed in Buffalo Bill's Wild West show and won the Cowboy Hall of Fame's Great Westerner award. Yet his colorful career has remained largely untold - until now." Editors Jim Fulbright and Albert Stehno provide historical context for McGinty's story - especially his common-soldier's view of the war with Spain as the Rough Riders voyaged from Port Tampa to Cuba and into the heart of battle. They then tell of his later years, when the resourceful Oklahoman promoted the McGinty Cowboy band and put this precursor of modern country-and-western music on live radio.
