This book takes the reader where only brave souls dare to compete--the world of bullfighting. Matadors risk serious injury or death to compete in their art, one that has been a part of Spanish and Latin American culture for centuries. Beginning with an introduction to bullfighting as it relates to American culture (not overlooking the negative views it often attracts), the book profiles 21 American matadors in detail, including women bullfighters, and novilleros (beginners). Chapters within each section are devoted to individual bullfighters. A major feature of this work are the numerous action photographs, many of which were taken by the author himself and impressively portray the flair, skill, emotion, and faces of bullfighting.
