Rounding out the series will be “The Last Cowboys : a pioneer family in the New West” by John Branch slated for discussion on Monday, December 6 at 6 p.m. For generations, the Wrights of southern Utah have raised cattle and world-champion saddle-bronc riders—many call them the most successful rodeo family in history. Now they find themselves fighting to save their land and livelihood as the West is transformed by urbanization, battered by drought, and rearranged by public-land disputes. Could rodeo, of all things, be the answer?
