Ever since the early cowboys cut a swath through the open range and the bawdy cow towns, rodeo has been part of the American scene. Today it has a huge following. Alive with color, movement, and sharp observation, Man, Beast, Dust tells the story of rodeo from its beginnings. Clifford P. Westermeier takes us along the dusty trails traveled by cowhands of only yesterday-to Cheyenne, Pecos City, Prescott, Lander, and Miles City. We attend "two-bit, " one-day shows and the fabulous arena contests of the cities. We rodeo with the champions across America as well as with those in Canada, England, South America, and Australia.Westermeier, Clifford P. is the author of 'Man, Beast, Dust: The Story of Rodeo - Clifford P. Westermeier - Paperback' with ISBN 9780803297159 and ISBN 0803297157.
