This was almost the same book as "Cowboy Roping and Rope Tricks" that I bought at the same time. It was written by the same author, had the same pictures and the same information. Also, this book was sent to me defective. It had half the pages inserted in the book upside down and backwards. I had difficulty returning it to this site postage free because, apparently, No one at this site looked into the book to see it was defective.
