Publisher's Summary

From Chautauqua presentations and medicine shows to rodeos and the singing cowboys of the Silver Screen, the history of itinerant entertainment is as old as the frontier itself. Cowboys, Clowns & Carnies takes the listener on an evocative journey through the outrageous cast of men and women - quack doctors, unscrupulous pitchmen, exotic dancers, and silent movie stars - who brought to frontier life the sights and sounds of a fabled Western ideal, the likes of which will never be seen again.

Cowboys, Clowns and Carnies

Pretty disappointing book. It was more like one of those in depth features you hear on NPR. Kind of light hearted.
