Running with the Bulls
Every year in July, the world's attention turns to the city of Pamplona, Spain. Thousands of people pack the cobblestone streets dressed in white and red. A rocket in the sky signals the big event, the Running of the Bulls. Runners scramble to keep ahead of the animals, or at least keep away from their sharp horns. Many wonder how and why such a tradition began, and this book has the answers as well as the sense of excitement. Readers will sense the perils of the run in action-packed photographs, trace the path on a map, and consider the controversial elements of the annual event.
