Buckaroo in Bloomers: The Myth and Mystery of Prairie Rose Henderson
Before there were rodeo queens, audiences in the first decades of the 1900s were thrilled by the exploits of rough riding belles of the rodeo. Prairie Rose Henderson was one of those belles. She galloped into rodeo arenas where audiences fell in love with this bright-eyed, curly-haired figure in her bloomers and sequined vests. But who was Prairie Rose? Was she the creation of a number of Wild West showmen? Was she a Wyoming ranch wife trying to earn a bit of extra money? This well-researched book explores the mystery around the Prairie Rose persona and the women who played that role, along with others in the Golden Age of Rodeo. Contains photos, end notes, and an extensive bibliography.
