This is a book of photos from the Vulcan Rodeo in southern Alberta. While the Calgary Stampede is the premier rodeo event in Alberta and probably North America the local small town rodeos are the life blood of the cowboy and of the Stampede.
Travelling to the rodeo you are likely to follow a horse van along dusty roads on their way to the same place as you.
These are photos that capture the essence of small town rodeo. Up close and personal.
