Rodeo Royalty in the American WestUnknown - 2006
In 1910, when the town of Pendleton, Oregon, held its first large-scale rodeo, the Pendleton Round-Up, it introduced a new kind of rodeo queen - not a traveling cowgirl performer but a young, middle-class woman from its own town. This work examines the history, evolution, and significance of the community-sponsored rodeo queen.
