"...a marvelously told biography of Bill Smith, the Montana native who became a long-running champion rodeo bronc rider. (Kahn's) meticulous effort pays real dividends." -- The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

is about family and freedom and, utlimately, how they braid themselves together in the human heart." -- Mark Spragg, author of Where Rivers Change Direction
"The most beautifully written rodeo or human story I have ever read." -- Larry Mahan, six-time World Champion All-Around Cowboy
