Dance of the Bull Rider
by Gary Clark
Dance of the Bull Rider is the story of a young cowboy’s determination to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and realize his dream of being a champion bull rider through hard work, doing the right thing, and learning that you can still love someone even when you don’t like them very much.
When his uncle is killed in a bull riding accident, sixteen-year-old Colt Murray’s father forbids him to ride for the Texas Championship Buckle. But a wise old fisherman teaches Colt to win his father’s approval through respect and honor instead of confrontation. Colt rides for the buckle, but an accident during the qualifying rounds puts Colt in the hospital and his dreams of the Championship Buckle in jeopardy.
Publisher’s Weekly Review (ABNA - 2012) said: “…The emotional core and pulse-pounding flashes of action will have even non-rodeo fans cheering for Colt all the way through to his championship ride.”
