THE COMPTON COWBOYS The New Generation of Cowboys in America's Urban Heartland

by | Read by Glenn Davis, Ron Butler

Biography & Memoir • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Glenn Davis's voice is gentle and steady whether he's setting scenes or introducing the Black cowboys who are often seen on the streets of Compton, California. He conveys the joy, love, and inner calm that come with their devotion to horses. Walter Thompson-Hernandez of THE NEW YORK TIMES embedded himself with the Compton Cowboys, a group of 10 riders, to show their "horse life" by telling the stories of the mostly male group. The tales include death and unnerving violence but also follow members on professional rodeo and show-jumping circuits and show healing through their work with horses. The Compton Cowboys have achieved celebrity, but Thompson-Hernandez also introduces listeners to other riding groups that can be found across the country.
