Arena Legacy is really three books in one. Part 1 provides a brief but well-done and superbly illustrated history of rodeo, deftly combining historical developments in the sport, mini-biographies of notable people and animals, and descriptions of events. The brief but enthusiastic foreword by rodeo great Larry Mahan says it all: I thought I knew all there was to know about rodeo until I read An Arena Legacy (ix).

Amazing look at the history of rodeo. The book to buy on the subject.

This is a great book that describes how rodeo got it's start and all the people that helped. Great pictures of saddles, boots, spurs, and chaps from the past. Very enjoyable.

I purchased this book as a request from my dad. He was pleased with the price compared to what he could find it for elsewhere. He has spent much of his time pouring over its content and photos!

For Christmas we gave this book to our 97 year old dad who grew up in Texas and Oklahoma. He LOVES it! He was especially thrilled to find he had known many of the rodeo people who are featured in the book.
