-- Here written in a lively fashion is the first full-length history of Fort Worth’s Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show. . .In many ways, this book is a business history of the stock show; it examines the show’s financial struggles in its early years through the Great Depression of the 1930s and from then in greater detail its economic successes to the 1990s. But it also covers the show’s rodeo events, its entertainers (who ranged from “Booger Red” Privett, Quanah Parker, and Bill Pickett in the early years to Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, and other national celebrities in more recent years.” – Paul Carlson, East Texas Historical Association

 --“An entertaining and illuminating account of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show.”— Stanley E. Siegel, The Western Library

--This record of this event parallels the history of agriculture and social development in the state; the book is expressive of a way of life. . . Readers with an interest in animal husbandry, cowboys, and rodeos will find this an excellent, detailed source.” –Sally Dooley, Review of Texas Books
