Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 14 years ago. This book tells the story of the first Pendleton Round-Up. Shorter and more consice than Kesey's SAILOR SONG, LAST GO ROUND foucusses on a true tale wih a tall tale twist.

It was the authors that drew me to this book-having thoroughly enjoyed all things Kesey, I was fascinated by a pairing with Babbs, another Merry Prankster. The backdrop of an early 20th century rodeo was intriguing. It did not disappoint.

It was around a sagebrush campfire in eastern Oregon that Kesey first heard the tale from his father - about the legendary "last go round" that took place at the original Pendleton Round Up in 1911. Hundreds of riders were competing for the first World Championship Broncbusting title, but it was one special trio of buckeroos that provided the drama: a popular black cowboy, George Fletcher; a Nez Perce Indian cowboy, Jackson Sundown; and a fresh-faced kid from Tennessee name of Johnathan E. Lee Spain. Who would walk away with the prize money and the silver-studded saddle?

Tell us if something is incorrect. Last Go Round : A Real Western. Book Format: Paperback. Out of the mists of Oregon lore, Ken Kesey has summoned a long-remembered story he first heard as a boy from his father around a campfire: the "last go round" at the Pendleton Round-Up in 1911, which pitted three cowboys against each other as they rode for the first world broncbusting crown. Penguin Publishing Group.

Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her.

It was around a sagebrush campfire in eastern Oregon that Kesey first heard the tale from his father - about the legendary "last go round" that took place at the original Pendleton Round Up in 1911.

Hundreds of riders were competing for the first World Championship Broncbusting title, but it was one special trio of buckeroos that provided the drama: a popular black cowboy, George Fletcher; a Nez Perce Indian cowboy, Jackson Sundown; and a fresh-faced kid from Tennessee name of Johnathan E. Lee Spain. Who would walk away with the prize money and the silver-studded saddle? When the dust cleared, everyone knew they'd witnessed something extraordinary.

Kesey has journeyed back into Oregon history to reclaim this long-remembered moment, beefed up the bare bones of fact, and whipped them into a full-blown rip-snorting Tale of the True West. Sixteen pages of rare Round Up photographs provide graphic testimony of the time. The tiny town of Pendleton is swollen to bursting that memorable weekend and bristling with colorful characters like Buffalo Bill Cody, wrestler Frank "The Cruel Crusher" Gotch, cowgirl Prairie Rose Henderson, and a formidable medicine man named Parson Montanic. From the teepees along the river to the teeming saloons on Main Street, Round Up fever blazes like a prairie fire. This story of love, sweat, and horseflesh is a unique Western, wild and wooly and full of fleas. Let 'er buck!

Reading this book before attending the Pendleton Round-Up made it more fun and interesting.
Connorise
OhMyGawsh fun read. Some history. Some elaboration. All a great story.
Mbon
A rare find...Kesey brings three forgotten cowboys to life.
Windforge
This is one helluva yarn, spun well and, by some accounts it's not much annoyed by the facts. It's a story that is mainly interesting in the telling.

It fits in reasonably well with Kesey's usual themes--like an Ernest Hemingway without the legendary drunken egotism.

Anyhow, as the balladeer once said of biogrophies,"The songwriter has the last word, not the historian," or something like that. To which we might add, "only the really good songwriters."
This is a very well told tale.

I've been reading Lahiri and McCann. This on their heels was a bit of a struggle. But Kesey is Kesey and he roped me in, delivered in the end. In spite of his slant to the ridiculous.
Tantil
Just blame my taste but I didn't finish Last Go Round nor did my husband. I can't think of anyone who would like it enough to give it to. It is meant to be told humorously and was missing our laugh button. Maybe it works for someone else.
Not to bad for a couple of aging druggies.
