Description:

In this intimate look at a fascinating subculture, award-winning sports journalist Josh Peter takes readers along on the Professional Bull Riders tour to witness the death-defying confrontation between man and beast that has made bull riding the fastest growing sport in the world. Success in this sport is measured in seconds—staying on a bull for 8 seconds without getting tossed is likely to secure the rider a big score. Josh Peter captures the high drama of the sport and introduces readers to a culture that’s rife with colorful characters: courageous riders, scouts, breeders, love-struck groupies, and a few of those very angry bulls.
