For a fascinating look into The World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale, pick up a copy of the book by the same title, authored by Sneed B. Collard III. Collard, the author of several titles for children in a variety of ages, brings readers up close to the annual event that celebrates rodeos, ranching, and culture.
In this book, filled with stunning photographs and tons of trivia about The World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale and rodeo history, Collard does an excellent job of making the reader feel like she’s there. Thoroughly researched, this account has regional appeal, but will definitely engage readers across the country with its action-filled accounts, interviews with rodeo and ranching professionals, and the thrill of a multi-day event that celebrates the Old West in a modern way.
Here in Massachusetts, we have the Eastern States Exposition, more commonly referred to as, The Big E. This three-week event includes horse shows, and we are sure to stop by each year to watch these beautiful animals in action. Rarely, however, is the danger level anywhere close to what you’ll find at The World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale, as depicted in Collard’s book.
While I have to admit to a high level on interest in the pioneering era and the settling of the Wild West, lovers of horses, rodeos, ranching, and anyone who would like to read about an important part of Montana’s history would enjoy The World Famous Miles City Bucking Horse Sale by Sneed Collard III. It makes learning about these topics fun for young people, while also engaging adults. Don’t be surprised if your child asks to move to a ranch in the midwest after they read this one.
I’ll certainly be looking at more of Collard’s work soon.
