This book is about James Newsome, born on June 4th 1824. He started out as an apprentice at Astley's Amphitheatre in London, under William Batty, and became one of the leading equestrians and horse-breakers of the day. He then started out in partnership with other circus performers, later starting out on his own, building over 60 wooden circuses which held 2,000 to 3,000 people all over the country. For 40 years, Newsome's Grand Circus was known throughout the country as one of the good circuses with good acts. This book is the full story of James Newsome and his grand circus.
