<b>"Charles Goodnight is perhaps more extensively known than any other western ranchman, cattle owner, and pioneer."</b><br /><br />Our imagination has been fired by such pioneer names as Boone, Kenton and the Wetzels in the pioneer days in Kentucky, and later farther west on the great plains and the Rocky Mountains we have other historical names, Kit Carson, Buffalo Bill (Cody), Payne and others, but very little has ever been written about the great southwest, where the Indian tribes of the prairie made their last struggle for supremacy, and where they had conflict with the first settlers and pioneers, who with all they held dear on earth, hewed out homes for themselves and the coming generations amid the most indescribable dangers from their foes. <br /><br />Pioneer Days is written by the rank and file who were the true heroes and heroines, who suffered and gave their lives and the lives of those near and dear to them, in order to lay the foundation for future happy homes, peace and prosperity. The writers of this book were the small remnant yet left who were the actual participators in these early struggles, and they give their experiences, unadorned, without any claim to literary merit; for the writers were by then old. <br /><br />When you read their simple statements of facts of Indian conflicts, of terrible suffering and privations, so unassumingly told by them, it is only fitting that those who have had the advantage of schools and Christianity, and refinement, of which they were almost entirely deprived, to cover their rough and often ungrammatical sentences with the cloak of Christian charity, and interline them with garlands of flowers and chivalry which truly belongs to them.<br /><br /> With contributions from Charles Goodnight (1836-1929), Emanuel Dubbs (1843鈥?932), and John A. Hart (1790鈥?840), the 1909 book "Pioneer Days in the Southwest" gives unadorned truths and conditions that fortunately have passed out forever. <br /><br />A great portion is devoted to the life of Charles Goodnight the first pioneer of the Texas Panhandle. No history of pioneer days would be complete without the name of Charles Goodnight. While Mr. Goodnight has a state and national reputation, the people of the Panhandle of Texas feel that they are especially honored in owning him as a citizen, and he and his estimable wife had, and now hold a place in the hearts of old timers as well as later settlers, that would cause the people to condemn any writer who failed to give to them that mete of praise which they so richly deserve, and place their name at the head of the highly honored galaxy of heroes who contended with and finally overcame every obstacle and danger of a country entirely given over to lawlessness at the time of their advent.<br /><br />These histories generally took place in the present-day states of Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, and New Mexico.

<p><strong>The聽triumphant聽true聽story of the native Hawaiian cowboys who聽shocked America at the 1908 world rodeo championships</strong></p><p><strong>A Pacific Northwest Book Award finalist * An NPR Best Book of the Year * An Oregon Book Award Finalist</strong></p><p><strong>"Groundbreaking. 鈥?A must-read. ... An essential addition." 鈥?lt;em>True West</em></strong></p><p>In August 1908, three unknown riders arrived in Cheyenne, Wyoming, their hats adorned with wildflowers, to compete in the world鈥檚 greatest rodeo. Steer-roping virtuoso Ikua Purdy and his cousins Jack Low and Archie Ka鈥檃u鈥檃 had travelled 4,200 miles from Hawaii, of all places, to test themselves against the toughest riders in the West. Dismissed by whites, who considered themselves the only true cowboys, the native Hawaiians would astonish the country, returning home champions鈥攁nd American legends.<br /></p><p>An unforgettable human drama set against the rough-knuckled frontier, David Wolman and Julian Smith鈥檚聽<em>Aloha Rodeo聽</em>unspools the fascinating and little-known true story of the Hawaiian cowboys, or <em>paniolo</em>, whose 1908 adventure upended the conventional history of the American West. </p><p>What few understood when the three paniolo rode into Cheyenne is that the Hawaiians were no underdogs. They were the product of a deeply engrained cattle culture that was twice as old as that of the Great Plains, for Hawaiians had been chasing cattle over the islands鈥?rugged volcanic slopes and through thick tropical forests since the late 1700s.</p><p>Tracing the life story of Purdy and his cousins, Wolman and Smith delve into the dual histories of ranching and cowboys in the islands, and the meteoric rise and sudden fall of Cheyenne, 鈥淗oly City of the Cow.鈥?At the turn of the twentieth century, larger-than-life personalities like 鈥淏uffalo Bill鈥?Cody and Theodore Roosevelt capitalized on a national obsession with the Wild West and helped transform Cheyenne鈥檚 annual Frontier Days celebration into an unparalleled rodeo spectacle, the 鈥淒addy of 鈥榚m All.鈥?lt;/p><p>The hopes of all Hawaii rode on the three riders鈥?shoulders during those dusty days in August 1908. The U.S. had forcibly annexed the islands just a decade earlier. The young Hawaiians brought the pride of a people struggling to preserve their cultural identity and anxious about their future under the rule of overlords an ocean away. In Cheyenne, they didn鈥檛 just astound the locals; they also overturned simplistic thinking about cattle country, the binary narrative of 鈥渃owboys versus Indians,鈥?and the very concept of the Wild West. Blending sport and history, while exploring questions of identity, imperialism, and race,聽<em>Aloha Rodeo聽</em>spotlights an overlooked and riveting chapter in the saga of the American West.</p>

Oklahoma's central location and ranching tradition gave it a unique connection to the rodeo industry as it grew from a local pastime to an internationally popular sport. From the very beginning, Oklahoma cowgirls played a significant role in developing the institution and the businesses that grew up in its shadow. Lucille Mulhall's pioneering roping carved out a place for women in the actual competition, while Mildred Chrisman's promotional efforts kept rodeo chutes open during the Great Depression. Modern ranchers like Terry Stuart produced the quarter horses sought by professional athletes around the world. From Guymon to Pawhuska and from stock contractors to rodeo clowns, Tracey Hanshew follows the trail that Oklahoma women blazed across this rough-and-tumble sport.
