BOOKS > Ropin' the Dream - by Ruth Lance Wester
Ropin' the Dream - by Ruth Lance Wester$15.00
Ruth Lance -- Book Ropin' the Dream: The Story of the Ken Lance Sports Arena, 1964-1994 - written by Ruth Lance Wester and June Proctor. Oklahoma cowboy Ken Lance turned a watermelon patch into a showcase rodeo arena bringing champions out of the chutes and Nashville stars on stage. They said it couldn't be done. When Oklahoma trick roper Ken Lance married Ruth Whitlock, he knew he had found the woman who would share his rodeo cowboy dream. She rode into the arena in Chicago, December 1961, as the rodeo princess, and returned with Ken to Oklahoma as his wife and business partner for the next twenty-five years. Together, with their dads, the four of them combined their rescources to build the Ken Lance Sports Arena and restored the annual Ada rodeo to its pre-World War II glory, as the second largest outdoor rodeo in the nation. From the dirt-poor days of the rodeo cowboy in the 1960's to the millionaire cowboys of the 1980's and 1990's, Ken and Ruth worked to produce a professional rodeo at a price that ordinary folks could afford. (It is now the home of The Gospel Station's 3-Crosses/Ken Lance Arena, Cowboy Church and Youth Camp).
