It's rodeo time on Terul - bronco riding, yertl tripping, dragon team roping, korth barrel racing, and dragon riding. (And if you thought bullriding was dangerous, just take a look at dragon riding at Kerluk.)
These are the events at the very first rodeo on planet Terul since the revival of the Intergalactic Rodeo Association. And Buck Johnson, Skeeter Evans, and Snort Jones are entered - using, of course, Buck's money to pay their entry fees.
Buck's nearly broke again after paying his and Snort's and Skeeters' entry fees. So, in order to get off Terul and find an easier life, they'll have to cowboy up and win some money. Still, if they hit a good lick, they can finally get off this sorry planet. But as every rodeo cowboy knows, a lot can go wrong before the final buzzer sounds and the last flag drops. It ain't over till the secretary signs the checks.

I really enjoyed how the author blended alien characters with classic rodeo terms. What a clever idea. Classic sci fi-with a twist! The narrator really brought the story to life.
I really enjoyed the rodeo announcer, who was literally "a sssssnake."
Ty Hunt did an outstanding job with the narration. I was amazed at his ability to do so many voices and switch back and forth between them so quickly. He really brought the characters to life with his different voices. His interpretation of the "snake" rodeo announcer was great.
Great author and an outstanding narrator. I hope Ty Hunt does more narration. He was a pleasure to listen to.
