COWBOY STUNTMAN: FROM OLYMPIC GOLD TO THE SILVER SCREEN follows author Dean Smith's career as a cowboy turned Hollywood stuntman, and provides a powerful autobiography surveying the family and career elements that influenced his career. From his encounters with the movie industry to how he got the chance to re-create some of the most powerful Western scenes in film, this creates a lively page-turner packed with encounters, events, high drama, and all the elements of a powerful read. While fans of cowboy memorabilia and insights will be the most likely readers of his autobiography, any interested in Hollywood stunt actors will also find COWBOY STUNTMAN packed with insights on the industry in general and stunt work in particular.
