LET 'ER BUCK: Charles Wellington Furlong's Classic Account of the Pendleton Round-Up and Rodeo
The world famous Pendleton Round-Up and Rodeo is underway out west in Pendleton, Oregon this week. The Round-Up's slogan, "Let 'er Buck, " is also the title of Charles Wellington Furlong's classic account of the rodeo in its early days. Let 'Er Buck: A Story of the Passing of the Old West, a monumental bestseller when first published in 1921, has been brought back to life by The Overlook Press with a stunning new commemorative edition, entirely faithful to Furlong's original volume and filled with more than 50 authentic black-and-white photographs.
