Bob Crosby – World Champion Cowboy is the story of one of rodeo’s greatest all-around cowboys. Originally published 40 years ago, the book tells the story of not only the man, but also the story of a golden era of rodeo. The cowboys and cowgirls earned the notoriety of movie stars and rodeos were major productions that traveled the world.
Crosby’s story is lovingly told by his wife, Thelma, with the able assistance of Eve Ball. The Crosby family was rodeo royalty at a time when rodeo was as much a show as a sport. But not only does the book tell Bob Crosby’s story, but also gives us a glimpse of other cowboys such as Richard Merchant, Carl Arnold and Tex Austin.
