Synopsis

This first balanced picture of circus
king John Ringling North explored the remarkable career of the man who ran Ringling
Bros. and Barnum & Baily for thirty years. David Lewis Hammarstrom details
how North guided the circus through adversities ranging from depressions and
wars to crippling labor strikes and rapidly changing trends in American entertainment.
Hammarstrom interviewed a host of circus figures including North himself; his
formers, directors, and department heads who were involved with the circus when
North owned and operated it.
