9780984446001: The World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale

For sixty years, the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale has helped keep Western traditions alive. Begun as a way for local ranchers to get rid of “spoiled” and unruly ranch horses, the Sale today has grown into a four-day celebration of rodeo, ranching, arts, and culture. Every year, thousands of people from all over the country converge on this small city in eastern Montana. They are treated to concerts, horse racing, a parade, an art auction, and some of the most exciting rodeo ridin’ anywhere. The actual auction of bucking horses and bulls remains at the heart of the event, but the Bucking Horse Sale has become a celebration of all aspects of Western life. It is, quite simply, the Cowboy Mardi Gras.
In The World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale, author Sneed B. Collard III helps bring this Western celebration alive. Through extensive interviews, spectacular photographs, and an action-filled blow-by-blow account of the festivities, the author gives readers a ringside seat to this iconic event. Through his meticulous research and descriptions, he guarantees that the only thing better than reading this book is going to the Bucking Horse Sale itself.

About the Author:

Sneed B. Collard III graduated with honors in marine biology from U.C. Berkeley, and has gone on to write more than 75 acclaimed books for young people. His books are known for their high interest and strong, authoritative voice, and have broken new ground both in their style and subject matter. In 2006, Sneed was honored with the Washington Post-Children’s Book Guild Nonfiction Award for his body of work. Sneed’s most recent science book, Fire Birds―Valuing Natural Wildfires and Burned Forests, was a Junior Library Guild selection and named an Outstanding Science Trade Book by the National Science Teachers Association and Children’s Book Council.

From Booklist:

Once a year, Miles City, Montana, becomes home to a celebration like no other. Collard takes readers inside the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale, a four-day event that draws visitors from across the country. Started in 1951 as a sale of wild horses, it’s evolved into a jamboree of music, rodeo, food, contests, and a parade. A concert kicks things off on Thursday. On Friday, it’s bull busting, where the brave get aboard bulls and the even braver distract the bulls once the rider is thrown. On Saturday, it’s bucking broncs and the horse auction; Sunday ends the fun with races. An extensive text looks at all these events and more, even getting into such topics as the decline of the small western town. Plenty of action-filled color photographs break up the narrative, most of them contemporary but some archival as well. Handsomely designed, with buff pages that resemble pieces of parchment and endpaper maps, this is a fascinating look at a fresh topic. A glossary and a page of books, videos, and websites for “further learnin’” round this up. Grades 5-8. --Ilene Cooper
