We begin by showing the complete circus parade as it takes place in the street. The first scene shows the parade coming down a broad asphalt avenue with park in background.

Entire parade shows elephants, camels, band wagons, chariots, cages of animals, and full circus paraphernalia, making a most interesting subject. The next picture shows the assembly or grand entry, and includes the entrance into the arena of the elephants, chariots, wild animals, horses, camels, etc. We next show an exciting horse race, consisting of eight horses, on which are mounted an Indian, a squaw, a Filipino girl, an Arab woman, an Arab, a cowboy and an English jockey and an American jockey. The picture concludes with a bareback team race.

In this race two horses are abreast, the driver standing up, with one foot resting on one horse and one upon the other. They make two circuits of the ring and furnish a very exciting climax to the picture. We begin by showing the complete circus parade as it takes place in the street.

The book talked a lot about how the press covered circus events and tragedies and how the circus leaders implemented advertising and marketing strategies.

The book examines the hardships of circus performance through this book; I had not realized the extent of the mistreatment of the circus workers and performers. Again, the book had some interesting information, but you would really have to be into circus history for it to be of much use. Apr 02, Phil Ford rated it liked it.

Textbook style presentation of the subject. The scope of the book is much broader than the title, it really is all a matter of the presentation and reader expectation.

8 Legendary Circus Performers

If one is expecting some kind of shallow romp through the ages of menageries and circuses of the past, they may well put it down after the first few chapters. For those interested in solid research, documentation and study, then this book will be rewarding. True, this book has a limited audience, but it is a necessary history of an important history of the American Circus. Pensive, reflective, a rewarding read.

Sep 21, Becky rated it it was ok. The amount of research the authors did for this book was extensive and impressive, and the stories of the women of the circus were presented in an engaging manner. Unfortunately the authors included so much repetition, ending every chapter with an almost verbatim recap of the chapter's premise, that it took a lot away from the reading. Honestly, without the repetition I think the book may have been less than half its length, which is a problem; the conclusion was literally a recap of the whole The amount of research the authors did for this book was extensive and impressive, and the stories of the women of the circus were presented in an engaging manner.

I try not to be disparaging of most things unless they're truly bad but this one just doesn't really hit the mark.

The material is interesting, but superficial. These are topics and examples better covered, and more in-depthly covered, in other books.

Information

Some of the "chapters" are only two pages long. For feminist and circus research, it's fluffy, skimming the surface of the topic just enough to provide salient details and interesting people and facts, with a I'm not sure what to make of this book. For feminist and circus research, it's fluffy, skimming the surface of the topic just enough to provide salient details and interesting people and facts, with a few big, academic words thrown in for good measure, but just fluffy.

Just when I got interested in a particular bit, it was over, like a high-school or middle-school level textbook. Sorry, but circus women deserve more. Mine it for interesting facts and then look up the originals.
