Branding day -- King of the rodeo -- Cowbells in the fog -- Blood and tradition -- Epilogue -- Acknowledgments.
For generations, the Wrights of southern Utah have raised cattle and world-champion saddle-bronc riders -- some call them the most successful rodeo family in history. Now Bill and Evelyn Wright, parents to 13 children and grandparents to many more, find themselves struggling to hang on to the majestic landscape where they've been running cattle for 150 years as the West is transformed by urbanization, battered by drought, and rearranged by public-land disputes. Could rodeo, of all things, be the answer? In a follow-up to his first book, New York Times reporter John Branch delivers an intimate family story deep in the American grain. Filled with scenes of ranch life and the high drama of saddle-bronc competition, The Last Cowboys chronicles three years in the life of the Wrights, each culminating in rodeo's National Finals in Las Vegas. Will Bill and Evelyn be able to hold the family together as rodeo injuries pile up and one of their sons goes off on a religious mission? Will their son Cody, a two-time world champion, make it to the finals one last time -- and compete with his own son? And will the younger generation -- Rusty, Ryder, Stetson, and the rest -- be able to continue the family's ways in the future?
