Life as John Waynes stuntman. Chuck Roberson fell off horses for thirty years, doubling for some of the biggest names in moves - John Wayne, Gregory Peck, Gable, Mitchum, and Heston. He and his great horse Cocaine devised a running horse fall that was safe but a spectacular improvement on the cantering lie down horse fall used before, and together they galloped their way into the Stuntman's Hall of Fame. When Cocaine finally quit after 27 years before the cameras, Roberson say his "heart wasn't in it any more." Now retired, he recalls the highlights of his career in this humorous book.
