Bill Pickett?s dad was born a slave before the Civil War. Bill was born after the Civil War, so he was free. I like this book because it has fabulous illustrations. My favorite part is when Bill bites the bull?s lip. I like it because it is gross. Bill uses bulldogging to help two cowboys brand cows.
I recommend that you should read this book on Rodeo Day. If you don?t have Rodeo Day, then you will learn a lot about the rodeo in this book. I think this book should be for ages six to fifty-two.
