Honeycutt's Traveling Rodeo and Genuine Old Fashioned Medicine Show is a retro-beat short story presenting a behind-the-scenes glimpse into a quirky modern-day traveling rodeo and medicine show. At times poignant, occasionally absurd, and often humorous, John Longbottom presents vignettes of this unusual crew of mismatched souls. Discover how twin sisters Abigail and Zelda came to run this ragged outfit. Meet the cross-eyed clown, Joe the Indian, and J.D. the musician, along with an assorted cast of zany carny performers. Listen in on their private conversations, learn who dislikes who and why, how they protect their own secrets, and how they all came together to work in this modern-day Wild West show.
