Montana Hometown Rodeo

Joanne Berghold, Photographer

Stirring black-and-white photographs of spectators and participants provide an unsentimental hometown view of Montana's small-town rodeo circuit. For anyone who ever wanted to be a cowboy or for anyone just in love with the West, this book will bring to you the sound of pounding hooves, the slap of leather, and the smell of dust and of cheering crowds.


"In her book, photographer Joanne Berghold capture[s] the spirit of Montana's small town rodeos, where hearts and bones are broken every summer, from the back lots of Wilsall to the big time at the county fairs in Plains or Kalispell."
