"Rodeo riders are honored athletes--skilled, smart, and tough. It takes brains, muscles, and a lot of practice to wrestle a racing steer to the ground or stay on top of a bucking, twisting bronco. Rodeo is the number-one mose exciting sport out West. Not so sure? Take a look."--Provided by publisher.

The rare book that is both poetry and fact, with content for both big and little, here we have a title that finally fills that gap. Best of all, you don't have to be looking for school or specialty fare to enjoy this one. Like wild bucking stallions and bulls that could impale you without so much as a snort? Welcome to the world of Navajo rodeo.

"Can't sleep. Can't eat. Mind keeps figuring, figuring, figuring - how tight to hold, how far to lean, how hard to squeeze to stay on top." That's just a sample of the thoughts going through a person's head before the Navajo rodeo. Though it has its roots in places like Arizona and Texas, rodeos can be found all over the Navajo Nation and are family affairs. Setting her book during the course of a single rodeo day, author Nancy Bo Flood plunges readers into what might be an unknown world. We see children near bucked from woolly riders (sheep), adults flung from broncos, women who sweep the barrel racer events, steer wrestlers, and, best of all, bareback bull riders. Saturating her text with facts, background information, and tons of photographs, this is one title that will prove tempting to kids already familiar with the rodeo world and those approaching it for the very first time.
