Happy Canyon: A History of the World’s Most Unique Indian Pageant & Wild West Show
Rebeca Fletcher Waggoner
For over a century, the Happy Canyon show has brought together families, friends and strangers to witness a joyous celebration of local history. Originally staged in 1914 by Roy Raley, the all-volunteer show presents a live retelling of Pendleton s founding that honors both the beauty of tribal life and the spirit of the Old West. Today, the show is truly a family affair, and many performers and organizers are descendants of those early actors and crew. Author Becky Fletcher Waggoner delivers a detailed, loving view of the show s history, illustrated with beautiful photography and fascinating archival photos that join past and present."
