Kevin R. Free narrates this chronicle of African-American cowboy legend George Fletcher, best known for his second place win at the 1911 Pendleton Round-Up. The audiobook recounts Fletcher's impressive riding skills as well as the discrimination he faced in the Old West. The poetic and precise text is well delivered. The audiobook's follow-up material provides additional insights on Fletchers' story with a glossary, notes about research methods, and additional biographical details on others such as a fellow rider from the Nez Perce tribe and a supportive sheriff. Fletcher's story helps explore the underrepresented experiences of black lives on the American frontier. The illustrated print version of this audiobook would be a good companion to listening.
