What People are Saying About This

Charlie Daniels

This book will bring back treasured memories to those of us who knew Casey personally and introduce those who never met him to the most colorful character I’ve ever met. Welcome to the world of Casey Tibbs, true friend, world-class practical joker, and above all, a cowboy. --(Charlie Daniels, Musician and Singer)

John Miller

This is truly a “must read” written by a great artist about a cowboy who revolutionized rodeo and the way it is viewed by the rest of the world. --(John Miller, Two-Time PRCA World Champion Team Roper)

Baxter Black

Casey Tibbs touched a lot of people. Some might say he was a good guy, but the truth is, he was larger than life. Each one of us who knew him has our own Casey story. We drop his name in conversation and it’s like rubbing rodeo’s greatest touchstone. That Rusty Richards has a way with words, is like saying Casey Tibbs could ride a bronc. It’s appropriate that Casey’s biography has been written by a cowboy who is his equal. --(Baxter Black, Cowboy, Poet, and Humorist)

Duncan Hunter

Rusty Richards captures the legend of Casey Tibbs as only a close friend and fellow horseman could. The character, the sense of humor, the talent to ride a bucking horse as no other man ever has...it’s all here, the story of a unique westerner, told by another. Duncan Hunter, former U.S. Congressman

Jack Roddy

Casey Tibbs was to rodeo what Babe Ruth was to baseball, a true legend. The story of the flamboyant, dangerous and exciting lifestyle of the great saddle bronc rider and all-around champion of the world, could only be told by Casey’s long time friend, Rusty Richards. --(Jack Roddy, World Champion Steer Wrestler, Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, National Cowboy Hall of Fame)
