<p><strong>The聽triumphant聽true聽story of the native Hawaiian cowboys who聽shocked America at the 1908 world rodeo championships</strong></p><p><strong>A Pacific Northwest Book Award finalist</strong></p><p><strong>"Groundbreaking. 鈥?A must-read. ... An essential addition." 鈥?lt;em>True West</em></strong></p><p><strong>"[An] inspiring and impeccably crafted story of against-all-odds triumph." 鈥擲imon Winchester</strong></p><p>In August 1908, three unknown riders arrived in Cheyenne, Wyoming, their hats adorned with wildflowers, to compete in the world鈥檚 greatest rodeo. Steer-roping virtuoso Ikua Purdy and his cousins Jack Low and Archie Ka鈥檃u鈥檃 had travelled 4,200 miles from Hawaii, of all places, to test themselves against the toughest riders in the West. Dismissed by whites, who considered themselves the only true cowboys, the native Hawaiians would astonish the country, returning home champions鈥攁nd American legends. </p><p>An unforgettable human drama set against the rough-knuckled frontier, David Wolman and Julian Smith鈥檚聽<em>Aloha Rodeo聽</em>unspools the fascinating and little-known true story of the Hawaiian cowboys, or <em>paniolo</em>, whose 1908 adventure upended the conventional history of the American West. </p><p>What few understood when the three paniolo rode into Cheyenne is that the Hawaiians were no underdogs. They were the product of a deeply engrained cattle culture that was twice as old as that of the Great Plains, for Hawaiians had been chasing cattle over the islands鈥?rugged volcanic slopes and through thick tropical forests since the late 1700s.</p><p>Tracing the life story of Purdy and his cousins, Wolman and Smith delve into the dual histories of ranching and cowboys in the islands, and the meteoric rise and sudden fall of Cheyenne, 鈥淗oly City of the Cow.鈥?At the turn of the twentieth century, larger-than-life personalities like 鈥淏uffalo Bill鈥?Cody and Theodore Roosevelt capitalized on a national obsession with the Wild West and helped transform Cheyenne鈥檚 annual Frontier Days celebration into an unparalleled rodeo spectacle, the 鈥淒addy of 鈥榚m All.鈥?lt;/p><p>The hopes of all Hawaii rode on the three riders鈥?shoulders during those dusty days in August 1908. The U.S. had forcibly annexed the islands just a decade earlier. The young Hawaiians brought the pride of a people struggling to preserve their cultural identity and anxious about their future under the rule of overlords an ocean away. In Cheyenne, they didn鈥檛 just astound the locals; they also overturned simplistic thinking about cattle country, the binary narrative of 鈥渃owboys versus Indians,鈥?and the very concept of the Wild West. Blending sport and history, while exploring questions of identity, imperialism, and race,聽<em>Aloha Rodeo聽</em>spotlights an overlooked and riveting chapter in the saga of the American West.</p>

Many horse trainers, even those who espouse the so-called natural horsemanship approach, take the position that horses who fail to obey a human's request are doing so as much out of perversity as ignorance. That's not Mark Rashid's view. In his words, "If we understand that horses can't separate the way they feel from the way they act, then we can start to see that unwanted behavior isn't bad behavior at all. More times than not, it's just the horse expressing the way he feels at that particular moment in time. . . .How we perceive that information dictates how we respond to it."<br /><br /><i>Whole Heart, Whole Horse</i> focuses on this idea, covering such subjects as gathering information from the horse, turning rider/trainer mistakes into positive experiences, developing realistic boundaries between you and your horse, understanding how and why horses release energy from real or perceived traumas, and reaching a comfortable balance point between horse and rider. Rashid analyzes developing softness, consistency, dependability, trust, and peace of mind in both horses and humans, as well as how to become a leader whom your horse will willingly want to follow and work with.<br /><br /> Full of examples that extend beyond the training pen, <i>Whole Heart, Whole Horse</i> offers good sense and information that will make you a more astute, capable, and sensitive horseman and person.

The Mustang River Ranch's wilderness chase offers the perfect opportunity to escape his fans and match wits with quarry that is tough, smart and athletic.<br /><br />Allie McIvor found a place to call home when she fled the city for a job at the luxury ranch. She barely knows the front of a horse from the back, but she can dress enough like a cowgirl to keep the guests happy. And she's not about to let the disdain of one swaggering cowboy dim her day, no matter that he's too sexy for his own boots.<br /><br />But when she finds herself competing in the rugged outdoors contest, she's forced to dig up reserves of strength and determination she never realized she had. While that might be enough to win the heart of one hot broody cowboy, the Montana wilderness conceals many dangerous predators...
