Description - The Circus Kings by Henry Ringling North

After years of being out of print, the story behind 'The Greatest Show on Earth' is back for new generations to discover. Through the early twentieth century, the Ringling Brothers created a spectacle like no one had ever seen, and one that still wows audiences to this day. Yet what most people do not know is that events behind the scenes rivaled the excitement and intrigue of the center ring.Originally published in 1960, and told with remarkable honesty by the nephew of the original Ringling brothers, ""The Circus Kings"" remains a clear and unexaggerated telling of what the circus was like for those who lived it.
