Description
Each fall in Pendleton, Oregon, there is great carnival that epitomizes the most dramatic phases of the pioneer days of the West and its spirit. There the real, practical work of the trail, cowcamp and range is shown through the sports of the pioneer. Recalling a phase of Americana that has all but passed, here is the work and life of the Old West, eternally engraved upon the escutcheon of our history. The epitome of the great human virtues with which the West was replete courage, daring, belief in work, love of play, optimism, and, above all, that balance-wheel of life humor. Furlong s classic is a unforgettable piece of the story of our American past.
