Praise

"A fascinating descent into the hell of one of America’s most notorious prisons, God of the Rodeo offers a surprising and humane portrait of the men trapped in a horror beyond imagining."
–JOHN BERENDT
   Author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

"A STORY OF SUCH ELOQUENCE AND BRUTALITY THAT, FROM TIME TO TIME, I SIMPLY HAD TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN AND THINK ABOUT WHAT I’D JUST READ. MAGNIFICENT!"
–SEBASTIAN JUNGER
   Author of The Perfect Storm

"Chilling and heartbreaking . . . A vivid, ambitious, and ferociously reported book that reads like a novel . . . Even people who know something about prison rodeos will find it hard not to be caught up in the richly etched lives he discovers behind the ghoulish pageantry. . . . Bergner’s rich, probing and compassionate book is a rare look at both the physical and spiritual world on the other side of the bars. . . . An eloquent and valuable book."
–The New York Times Book Review

"BERGNER’S PROSE IS POWERFUL, AT ONCE JOURNALISTIC AND PERSONAL. HE ROMANTICIZES NEITHER THE PRISONERS NOR THEIR KEEPERS."
–USA Today

"ASTONISHING . . . REMARKABLE . . . BREATHLESS STORYTELLING."
–The San Diego Union-Tribune

"COMPELLING . . . A HARROWING YET HUMANE BOOK."
–The New York Times

"ONE OF THE MOST FASCINATING BOOKS PUBLISHED IN YEARS."
–LARRY KING
