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 is then devoted to American matadors, including women bullfighters, and novilleros (beginners). Chapters within each
section are devoted to individual bullfighters. A major feature of this work are the numerous photographs, many of which were
taken by the author himself and impressively portray the flair, skill, emotion, and faces of bullfighting.
