I was disappointed, but it wasn't the author's fault. 10 juin 2005
Par Dan Scheraga - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The mistake I made here was judging the book by the cover. I picked it up because I thought the topic was interesting, and I thought it would detail the lives and personalities of the kind of sassy, salty, almost defiant cowgirls like the ones depicted on the cover. I knew next to nothing about the rodeo and never heard of a rodeo queen before, so I thought she was a sort of cowgirl, not a beauty queen. I expected to be taken on a wild ride through the rodeo circuit. But instead I found myself reading a pseudo-feminist treatise on the shallowness of rodeo and the empty mythos of a West that never existed. I found myself disappointed in the subject matter, much as I imagine the author became disappointed when she delved into it. The only thing I wish the author could've done differently was to view the rodeo more as a community of characters and personalities, rather than as an abstract construct.

Don't waste your time. 28 novembre 2003

As a rodeo competitor, rodeo queen, and cowgirl I was at time offended at this book and the terribly untrue and negative it said about rodeo... and the people who embrace the western lifestyle. I only finished the book to hear the rest of what the author had to say. I was excited to start reading it, and disgusted when I was done. If you want to know the real view and role of women in the west you won't find it in this book..keep looking.

I purchased this book for a friend as she had loaned hers and didn't get it back. She has let me read it and I find it very interesting. If you are a rodeo fan, you will find good stories and information in this book.

Women's stories tell of their successes and failures 4 mars 2004
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Joan Burbick's Rodeo Queens And The American Dream examines the women of the rodeo: those who traveled the rural West for years and who became 'rodeo royalty' from the 1930s onward. Women's stories tell of their successes and failures riding the rodeo circuit in this involving guide.

the real deal 4 mai 2005
Par Caldonia - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As the great-granddaughter of one of Pendleton OR.'s first rodeo queens, and the daughter of a former Wa-Hi Farmerette, I believe Burbick hits the bull's eye with her exploration of western women. Only those so entrenched in the false mythology of the west would take offense at these incredibly sensitive essays. Burbick uncovers yet another way in which women participated in the real west - a place of hardship and hard work.

Anyone who thinks that this region is the result of anything but violence, hardship and heartbreak is delusional - and the sense of entitlement whites have with regard to what the west really is is a load of horse manure.

My mother learned from her mother, and her grandmother, how to be a strong woman, and this message was passed along to me. We are cancer victims, alcoholics, intellectuals and damn hard workers. Burbick knows this about these women, and portrays them with respect. Her critique is not that these women, or women who are now involved in the rodeo queen circuit are the problem - rather the commercialized, capitalistic society that has perpetuated the wrong and bad idea that women are for show is at fault.
