September 9 at 5PM the long awaited signing for Betty Colley and Jane Monday's Master Showmen of King Ranch: The Story of Beto and Librado Maldonado will be at The Twig. "In The Master Showmen of King Ranch, Beto Maldonado recalls an eventful life of training and showing King Ranch Santa Gertrudis. He engagingly describes the process of teaching two-thousand-pound bulls to behave 'like gentlemen' in the show ring, as well as the significant logistical challenges of transporting them to various high-profile venues around the world. His reminiscences, which span more than seventy years of King Ranch history, combine with quotes from other Maldonado family members, co-workers, and ranch owners to shed light on many aspects of ranch life, including day-to-day work routines, family relations, women's roles, annual celebrations, and the enduring ties between King Ranch owners and the vaquero families who worked on the ranch through several generations." http://www.utexas.edu/utpress/books/colmas.html (booksense)
