An intimate look at a fascinating subculture, its star personalities, and the death-defying confrontation between man and beast that has made bull riding the fastest growing sport in the world.

Just as spectators flock to a NASCAR race because of its inherent danger, bull riding possesses a blood-and-guts excitement that sells tickets. In Fried Twinkies, Buckle Bunnies, and Bull Riders, award-winning sports journalist Josh Peter takes readers along on the 2004 Professional Bull Riders (PBR) tour to witness the sport's exploding popularity--and discover why athletes in spurs, cowboy hats, and colorful chaps are hooking millions of fans across the country.

The 2004 season begins like all PBR seasons, with 800 cowboys competing for a chance to be in the top 45 who ride in 29 major events during the season, with the best of the best taking home a $1 million bonus. Success is measured in seconds--managing to stay on a bull for 8 seconds without getting tossed is likely to secure a rider a big score. Most riders fail. Many get seriously injured; some die. Josh Peter captures the high drama of the sport and introduces readers to a culture that's rife with colorful characters: the courageous riders chasing their dreams, the scouts, breeders, love-struck groupies, and a few of those very angry bulls.

Was an interesting way, using "menu" to explore and describe the unfolding of the Professional Bull Riding Association and its' politics, which are present in any organization. As a rodeo fan and former participant, I believe other rodeo events will split off and produce their own extreme sports events to enable the top rodeo cowboys to earn top pay and develop a true fan base, and create "stars" and get television coverage as in other sports. Otherwise, it will remain rooted in the past and a niche sport with limited exposure. Worth the time of any rodeo fan to read this.

I LOVED the book. Not knowing (or caring) anything about bull riding, I was not expecting to get into it, but I did. Folks outside "the sport" should know what an interesting and fun read "Fried Twinkies..." is. I really developed a love for the riders and I was rooting for them. I wanted Moraes to get his third buckle but Lee was so deep and introspective, I was not surprised at how far he went. I couldn't wait for the end!! I was truly transported into a world I knew nothing about and it was really a full picture. I expected the cussing, drinking, etc., but the Cowboy Church, political/business takeover of the tour and even the story from the breeders and bulls POV had oh so much drama -- showing again how once someone or a group of someones finds a passion, it drives individuals and creates industry. Plus the search for the deep fried Twinkies at the concession stands was a hoot!!

Not sure how I learned about this book but sure glad I ordered it. Have been a loyal fan club member of the PBR for years even been to the Finals in Las Vegas and going again this year. But back to the book, for years wondered why Tuff Hedeman left the PBR and now I know why. Sorry you have to buy and read the book to learn. This book written for the year 2004 also gave what goes on behind the chutes which really surprised me. Watching on TV you receive a totally different view. Hopefully all the Bull Riders have settled their differences and are pulling together to make the PBR even more awesome. Never heard of "Fried Twinkies" and "Buckle Bunnies before but interesting for sure. Josh Peter, who wrote this book, also details what all the riders have to go through before and after each event including those terrible injuries received.

Hubby was a bull rider he laughed and laughed. Great book and good stories.

Really like the book (wife also has now read it). We are both fans of the PBR (along with PRCA, etc) as I grew up around rodeos & my late aunt was a barrell racer. I do feel like he slighted Mike Lee just a bit-personal dislike for Mike's Christianity, maybe?

This book was disappointing to me. The review sounded as if you would read about the lives of the bull riders, but once into the book, it was more of a description on who won on what days and not much more. It really lacked the depth that I had hoped for when I purchased it.

While reading, I felt like I was there. Lots of behind the scene info that made it seem more alive. Loved that it discussed the sport from all angles: the riders, the bulls, the cattlemen, the corporate guys.
