Jim Shoulders: King of the Rodeo Cowboys

57 pages25 minutes


This Ebook tells about the life and rodeo career of the legendary Oklahoma cowboy Jim Shoulders. He was born in Tulsa but lived most of his adult life in tiny Henryetta, Oklahoma. Shouders was tough as a boot, mentally and physically, until the day he died. That is how he managed to win an astounding 16 world championships in rodeo competition (bronc riding and bull riding). And he still continues to inspire young would-be rodeo champions to do their best today.

The Ebook is based on Stan Paregien's two personal interviews with Jim Shoulders, the last taking place just weeks before Jim's death. It tells about his friends, his family and both his struggles and his triumphs. And it points out his single-minded focus on making a living at something he really enjoyed.
