Summary
Beauregard "Bo" Decker and Virgil Blessing set out from their ranch in Montana to Phoenix, Arizona on the bus, so Bo can participate in a big rodeo. Bo is a brash, obnoxious, at times rather dislikable young man, skilled at ridin' and rustlin' and not much more. Bo has in his mind that there in the big city, he's going to find "an angel" and take possession of her. In Phoenix, he meets Cherie. She had enough gumption to get out of Arkansas, and is now trying to earn enough money to get to L.A. But Cherie isn't quite ready to become Bo's personal angel, even if it would get her out of a dive girlie club!
