Gr 4-7--These attractive series titles present clear, well-written overviews of their subjects with plenty of well-chosen full-color and black-and-white photos. Alter includes chapters on the first rodeos, standard events and rules, legendary performers, and women in rodeo. Presnall goes back to ancient civilizations and traces the origins of the circus as we know it, highlighting its golden age and many of its star performers. Both of these colorful and informative books are suitable additions for reports as well as pleasure reading.
