Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Donna Ashcraft
Fantastic action photographs accompany this delightful book about the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale held the third weekend in May in Montana. Carefully researched, Collard's book explains the history, development, and present day excitement surrounding this annual event. Taking the reader through the details of these three days of events, Collard captures the unique community strength and genuine Western pride that goes with the lifestyle of the cowboy and the adventures of rodeo. The sale beings with two men who wanted to sell off ranch horses that were unruly. It eventually turns into a rodeo where the horses are ridden by cowboys and as each dismounts or is bucked off, the horse is then auctioned to the highest bidder. Other events have been added, and the details of each challenge are vividly described. For those unfamiliar with rodeo and riding, terms are defined in the margins, and the book includes references for further study, a glossary of terms, and an index. Although it is listed for ages 8—14, this fascinating account with beautiful photos is a fun book for all ages, and captures a unique part of American life and culture. Reviewer: Donna Ashcraft
