Synopsis: Explores the life of this legendary rodeo cowboy and how his breaking the Cowboy Hall of Fame color line remains a landmark event for African-Americans.
From Library Journal:
A U.S. postal stamp bearing African American cowboy Bill Pickett's name but his brother Ben's picture recently created a furor in the stamp-collecting community and inadvertently rescued Bill Pickett from obscurity. Known as the "Dusky Demon," Pickett rose from ranch hand to rodeo star in the early 1900s by bulldogging steers with his trademark "bite 'em" style. Johnson, an editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, sketches Pickett's relationships with professional managers and traces his movements on the national and international Wild West circuit. Moving beyond the scope of the only other available biography, Bailey C. Haines's Bill Pickett, Bulldogger: The Biography of a Black Cowboy (1977), Johnson joins the Pickett legend with the philatelic controversy. Recommended for general readers and collections on African Americans in the West.
