The Juarez Bullring Book

Matadores Latinos, out a few years back, is still available via and orderable in most big book stores. While the title is in Spanish, the book is in English and covers the history of the Plaza De Toros Monumental in Juarez, long since torn down.

The book offers brief profiles of many toreros who appeared in the Monumntal, though not all. Some have passed, such as Manuel Capetillo, Felix Briones, Bernardo Valencia and Pepe Luis Hurtado, since the book was released and are thus dealt with as still alive at the time of publication.

There are several fine photos, including several published no place else before. Queretano, Jesus Solorozano, Fernando Dos Santos, Cavazos, Silverio  and Gaston Santos are some of them.

Bios include Manolo Dos Santos, Paco Camino, Cordobes, the Capetillos, the Silevtis, the Arruzas, Marcos Ortega, the Armillitas, Rafael Rodriguez, Calesero, Luis Procuna, Jaime Bravo, John Fulton, Guillermo Montes Sortibran, Guillermo Carvajal, Felix Briones,  Mauro Liceaga, Manolo Martinez, Eloy Cavazos, Mariano Ramos, John Fulton, Sidney Franklin, Francisco Ruiz Miguel, Miguel Villanueva, Mario Sevilla,  Raul Ponce De Leon, Rafaelillo, Antonio Del Olivar, Antonio Urrutia, David Renk, El Charro, Alfredo Leal, Jose Antonio Gaona, Rogelio Leduc, Cesar Giron and more.
