THE AMERICAN RODEO RODEO COWBOY HEROES BILL PICKETT - TOM MIX - DICK TRUITT - CASEY TIBBS We specialize in finding old Americana History. Here is "The American Rodeo," by Williard H. Porter that includes outstanding photos of the greatest cowboys, cowgirls, and their feats of prowess. There is actually a photo of Bill Pickett bulldogging a steer by his teeth. I had heard of this feat but never seen the actual picture. It was taken in Phoenix, Arizona in 1905. There is also a picture of Pickett on a poster at the El Toreo Bull Ring advertising the fact that Pickett "will enter the Arena and Do Hand-to-Hand Battle with Bonito, the Most Admittedly Wicked Bull in the Republic…" "Pickett's Funeral Will Follow His Foolhardiness." Another unseen picture is a group of contestants at the Seattle-Yukon Exposition, 1909, in which the second figure from the left is Tom Mix. This is a fabulous story of the greats of the American Rodeo, including pictures and stories of Bill Linderman, John McEntire, Dick Truitt, Leo Caldwell, Tex McLeod, Fanny Sperry, Jim Massey, Otto Kline, Ted Lucas, Jackson Sundown, Yak Canutt, Fritz Truan, Mabel Strickland, just too many to write about here. Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kin-folks lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer's shelf. See index below. I hope you appreciate the effort.
