A must have for all Chris fans- and rodeo addicts everywhere! Very well writen and thought out. After reading this book, it is obvious that Chris LeDoux writes from the heart. He is in a class of his own.

I think Gold Buckle Dreams is fantastic. Chris LeDoux represents what is great about our country about rodeo, and about country music. Gold Buckle Dreams lets us see some of the stories of the life of an American rodeo legend. It is great to find someone with such talent, also being someone of such dignity, and heart. Chris LeDoux's music brings to life these stories from his life. Buy the music, then read the book! Chris' songs had pieced together a story of his life in my mind , and Gold Buckle Dreams opened the door to see even more of the life of a champion.

If you rodeo, like I do and you read this book it will make you want to enter every rodeo in the country. This book gave me more inspiration than anything ever in my entire life. I read this book my sophmore year in high school on the way back from High School National Finals Rodeo, where I had purchaced it at the Chris Ledeux concert. I went there with a friend whom had made the finals. I was so inspired by the book that I made up my mind right then and there that I would make it to the Finals myself if it were the last think I did! Over the next year I worked very hard, practicing every chance I got not only did I make the state finals but I won Reserve State Champion, and made the National Finals. The next year I won State Champion and also made the finals, even to this day since I read the book no mater how much I win I always know that with more effort the sky is the limit. I honestly believe that someday I will be a World Champion like Chris Ledeux, and I ab! solutely will not give up until that day. I truly believe that Chris Ledeux is one of the Great American Cowboy Heros, and I know there are many other rodeo cowboys out there who feel the same way I do. Do yourself a favor and "READ THIS BOOK".

I love Chris Ledoux, so when I saw this book, I knew I had to have it. This book is a wonderful biography of Chris' life, but full of excitement, anticipation, adrenaline, etc. Once I pick up this book, I can hardly put it down. I am more than half way through and I want to cry because I do not want the book to end. This is an amazing outline of Chris' life starting at an early age. It talks about how he got into the rodeo business then into recording. If you are a true Chris Ledoux fan, this is the book for you. I am a big Ledoux fan, so this book sends me into a calm, relaxed mode, and allows me to see into Chris' life. It shows his true personality, and if you were not a fan before, you will be after only reading a few pages of this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the life of Chris Ledoux. It speaks about how he overcomes challenges, fights through the pain, shows how educated he really was. Buy this book or look for it in your local library. I paid more than what I wanted to pay for the book, but now I know why. It is too good to pass up.

This is a wonderfully written book about the life and travels of Mr. Chris LeDoux. I purchased it in 1996 and have enjoyed the pleasure of re-reading it several times. As a person who has all, but two of his albums, I couldn't put it down. Lost alot of sleep for 3 days (reading into the wee hours). When you read it, you will also smile and hear the songs that specifically relate to the stories. Such as "Hippies in Calgary". Do yourself a favor and purchase it. Another good read is "Gold Buckle" by Jeff Coplan. Also, "Hey Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky?" by Baxter Black

This book is by David Brown as told to him by Chris LeDoux. It starts when Chris was
a child learning to ride horses and living in Texas, later moving to Cheyenne as a teenager, and follows
his life through attainment of his dream of becoming a World Champion bareback bronc
rider. It was written before he became world famous for his musical talent but describes
the beginnings of his musical career as well.

Chris describes one special memory of standing in the empty, quiet arena at Cheyenne Frontier Park
as a teenager dreaming of being able to ride in the Frontier Days Rodeo. I can just feel the emptiness
of the big arena and hear the Wyoming wind whistling through it. When Chris performs in Cheyenne, it is
always very special to him. With all that Chris has attained since this book was written,
there is definitely a need for a sequel. I don't think Chris ever even dreamed he would be a
World Champion western singer too
