Rodeo Cowboys in the North American Imagination

Reno: University of Nevada Press, 1998. First edition. Hardcover. 270p + 22 ills. Fine / fine. Item #30851

Here a cultural historian explores the "myth" of the rodeo cowby in movies, television, folkore, literature, country music, and the visual arts. He then examines "the impact of this myth [on] the rodeo milieu--the commercialization of the event, and the professionalization of rodeo performers; the arrival on the rodeo scene of performers outside the white, male, western, rural origins of the traditional cowboy." (In print at $29.95).
