Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Bullfighting has a legacy reaching back to the ancient world, and it continues to be a popular spectacle in many Latin countries and even in a bloodless form in the United States. Such American writers as Barnaby Conrad (who provides a foreword), Tom Lea, and Ernest Hemingway have celebrated the sport. Here, a noted bullfighting photographer and amateur participant salutes American bullfighters in a largely photographic essay. He provides an introduction to bullfighting in America, including a chapter on "Hollywood's Love Affair with Bullfighting," then traces the careers of toreadors from the early Harper Less, John Fulton, and Sydney Frankin to Conchita Cintron, Patty McCormick, and other women. He also devotes a section to novilleros (beginners). Though Sherwood translates some of the bullfighting terms, a fuller glossary would have helped readers. A novel, worthy effort that will appeal especially to libraries near Mexico. Morey Berger, St. Joseph's Hosp. Lib., Tucson, AZ

Format: Paperback
Lyn(RIP) included me and my efforts in this text. He traveled with me as friend, photographer and aficionado for a couple of years.

Because he att, marginally,empted this art form, Lyn was able to capture a certain insight into what goes on in the world of "toreo", be it American, Mexican, Spanish, French, etc.. Was he always right, no. He did however, have, from the inside, a lot of stories to tell. They were about real people, trying an extremely competitive, ritualistic art form, which ,by a lot of talent, courage and luck, might become stars.
An interesting read with good photos.

This tale of American bullfighters held me from cover to cover. I was unaware that this latin artform covered so many countries, so many basis, so much suffering on the hope of success.
