    Wolman and Smith explore an inflection point in the story of the American west from a fascinatingly distinct perspective, I had a hard time categorizing this book Aloha Rodeo is a biography It s a sports story It s unexplored and unknown popular history It s about culture, the imperial era, the environment, and a story of the stories we tell ourselves, all captured from a poignant, intimate perspective If you think you know the best stories of the American West and cattle culture, think ag Wolman and Smith explore an inflection point in the story of the American west from a fascinatingly distinct perspective, I had a hard time categorizing this book Aloha Rodeo is a biography It s a sports story It s unexplored and unknown popular history It s about culture, the imperial era, the environment, and a story of the stories we tell ourselves, all captured from a poignant, intimate perspective If you think you know the best stories of the American West and cattle culture, think again and give Aloha Rodeo a read Nearly every page seems to contain a hidden nugget that will challenge your assumptions about the time period I listened to the audio version, and Kaleo Griffith is fantastic, expertly finding the depth and authenticity of the story in his performance Highly recommend to anyone with even a fleeting interest or curiosity in Hawaiian history, cattle culture, and the mythos of the Wild West

    I enjoy books that highlight the unknown pockets of history I had no idea about the cattle and ranch history on Hawaii They had a cowboy culture before the mainland did I also like stories about humble heroes who overcome the prejudice of their time Even though I m not particularly interested in rodeo this book still engaged me, probably because of the western history I have visited the history museum in Cheyenne devoted to Frontier Days and, sure enough, these Hawaiian cowboys are feature I enjoy books that highlight the unknown pockets of history I had no idea about the cattle and ranch history on Hawaii They had a cowboy culture before the mainland did I also like stories about humble heroes who overcome the prejudice of their time Even though I m not particularly interested in rodeo this book still engaged me, probably because of the western history I have visited the history museum in Cheyenne devoted to Frontier Days and, sure enough, these Hawaiian cowboys are featured Their story would make a good film
