For all who love a slice of the true West, a big bite of rodeo history and just a downright great story about one exceptional man, you will love this book.
Casey Tibbs – Born to Ride, by Rusty Richards, was a fascinating read and an eye-opener for me. Inside the pages of this book I met the man who is a true American Legend and learned much about a world I never knew before.
The author starts with Casey’s humble beginnings and advances to the tragedies and battles he endured and overcame. Casey knew from an early age what he wanted out of life, but he soon found it didn’t match what his father wanted for him. Casey had some tough decisions to make, however, he was determined to achieve that goal.
We are privileged to read of Casey’s travels, adventures, rodeo success, and his personal life - both victories and failures. Some incidents are humorous, others heart-felt, but each gives the reader insight into the fascinating life of this legend of a man. I am convinced that no one knew horses or understood the world that they were the stars in more than Casey Tibbs.
From roundups to winning awards and insight into the very heart and soul of Casey Tibbs, this book has it all. I am honored that I now have a knowledge of a great American Legend I will not soon forget.
Very well done. Recommended.
