Abstract

2011 Book Reviews 209 sive notes mark a clear scholarly trail for anyone desiring to delve deeper into specific people, artifacts, topics, or events. The lively, clear writing paints vivid pictures of rodeo and its participants. Rodeo fans and visitors to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum con- stitute primar y audiences for this beautifully produced book. The rich selection of illustrations adds interest for any reader but should particularly attract collectors of western gear and scholars of western material culture. The book serves as a visually rich documentation of the world of rodeo and as an excellent showcase for the collections of the National Cowboy &Western Heritage Museum. Texas, home to legendar y ranches and rodeo stars, gets ample attention, including places (Stamford, Fort Worth) and people (Tex Austin, Don Gay, Toots Mansfield, Bill Pickett). This volume nicely complements the author’s earlier A Western Legacy (University of Oklahoma Press, 2005). The brief but enthusiastic foreword by rodeo great Larr y Mahan says it all: “I thought I knew all there was to know about rodeo until I read An Arena Legacy” (ix).
