He had been a high school agronomy teacher. Angola is for hard nosed convicts (`big-stripes'). Sunday rodeo has been a tradition at Angola for thirty years; one of the traditions Cain encourages to promote prisoner humanity. Apart from the Wild Horse Race, Angola has three RODEO events of its own devising : Bust Out - 6 bucking bulls in the arena at once, Guts and Glory - a $100 tag hung between a bull's horns, and Convict Poker - involves four seated `card players', a card table, a clown and a bull. This inside look at prison life also covers visitation rights and limitations, sex in the showers, violent fights, racial politics, and the acts for which long sentences were earned. One of the rodeo stars of the book is inmate Johnny Brooks. 297 pages - UNillustrated. Cond : Paper wrapper is white with black and blue bordering, and lettering the same.

God of the Rodeo: The Search for Hope, Faith, and a Six-Second Ride in Louisiana's Angola Prison - gebrauchtes Buch

Every October, more than 20,000 spectators pack into a ramshackle stadium at Angola, Louisiana's notorious maximum security prison. They come to watch the inmates ride the bulls in the prison rodeo, a gladiatorial spectacle of violence and fierce determination. Eighty-five percent of these inmates have killed, raped, or robbed and are serving life without parole. They are ruled by Warden Burl Cain, who subscribes to the teachings of Jesus and Attila the Hun and who claims to offer salvation to even the most hardened criminal. Journalist Daniel Bergner traces a year in the lives of six convicts. Never before has an outsider been given such unlimited access to Angola. The result is a searing portrait of this 5,000-inmate facility and its warden, where not long ago 37 prisoners slashed their Achilles tendons to protest the unbearable conditions. In luminous prose and with unflinching detail, Bergner reveals both the barbarous brutality and the moments of grace among men whose best hope for redemption is that six-second ride at the rodeo.
