The fascinating story behind the scenes of circus life opens with an interesting account of the birth of the circus and a brief history of some of the famous families whose descendants are performing in the ring today. The author then describes the intricate and varied acts - acrobats, tumblers, jugglers, clowns, midgets, trapeze and high wire artistes - and that integral part of the circus, the animals - horses and their famous masters, exotic animals including elephants, lions, tigers and leopards.

The undiminished vitality, skill and element of danger in circus acts will make for a great and thrilling spectacle and in Sawdust and Spotlight, the whole glorious and colourful life of the circus and its people is absorbingly highlighted.

Condition: Very Good in Very Good dustjacket with a very small tear on the back, and some shelf wear. (Click on image above for close-up of front cover).
