Description
There wasn't, anything Will Rogers couldn't rope, from his headmaster's horse to a wild zebra on the African plains. And -- whoop, whoop, whoop -- he was just warming up for the hard stuff! (Who do you think roped the earth and made the equator, anyway?)

Illustrated with Scott Goto's over-the-top paintings and told by Debbie Dadey with the legendary humor that Will Rogers himself was so renowned for, Will Rogers: Larger than Life pays tribute to the spirit and bold adventures of America's most beloved humorist, humanitarian, and lasso artist extraordinaire.
