Julian Smith - Aloha Rodeo

Three Hawaiian Cowboys, the World's Greatest Rodeo, and a Hidden History of the American West, a History Book Talk & Signing

Julian Smith, award-winning author and journalist, will discuss and sign Aloha Rodeo: Three Hawaiian Cowboys, the World's Greatest Rodeo, and a Hidden History of the American West ($27.99 William Morrow). An unforgettable human drama set against the rough-knuckled frontier, this book unspools the fascinating and little-known true story of the Hawaiian cowboys, or paniolo, whose 1908 adventure upended the conventional history of the American West. Blending sport and history, while exploring questions of identity, imperialism, and race, Aloha Rodeo spotlights a riveting chapter in the saga of the American West.
