For your consideration is the book, An Honest Try, by world renowned sculptor Bob Scriver, first edition 1975. A collection showcasing Bob Scriver's award-winning Rodeo Series of Sculpture. Scriver is one of just a handful of Western artists elected to both the Cowboy Artists of America and the National Academy of Western Art.

Splendidly photographed by renowned photographer Asger Mikklesen, and reproduced in color and sepia tone, the Rodeo Series reflects all the action and nobility of the Western drama called rodeo.
