Descrizione prodotto


A First of May is a true story about the wonderful world of the circus and circus people. In 1949 and 1950 I was an aerialist with Cole Brothers circus. My book is an inside look under the big top at wire walkers, elephant acts, acrobats, clowns and the fabulous aerial ballet girls. It's about twenty-five girls living on the circus trains, performing in different towns every day; young girls learning the ropes and finding their way in a new and exciting life. Of course, some names have been changed.

5.0 su 5 stelle From Brooklyn to the Big Top... 15 novembre 2012
Di vvk - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This is a wonderful true story about a young girl who lives in Brooklyn and who dreams of joining the circus. She actually does! As with any good writer, Betty's voice and heart lingered in my mind long after reading her words. Simply written, this is a touching tale of yearning, innocence, of following a dream, and about the friendships and lessons learned along the way. A unique insight into the circus from someone who experienced it first-hand. A delightful and easy read. The First of May left a smile on my face and warm remembrances of my own childhood desires to leave home and find color and excitement in the world yet undiscovered.

5.0 su 5 stelle A wonderful gem of a book! 2 dicembre 2012
Di Doc - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This book is a little gem that takes you behind the scenes of the circus, as seen through the eyes of an ambitious and fearless (perhaps somewhat reckless?) adolescent. It is both a tale of coming of age of a teenage girl who wanted more from life than the confines of her neighborhood in Brooklyn as well as an insightful look at the lives of circus performers in that era. Betty Paterson Smyth (the mother of rock singer Patty Smyth) is an artful writer who paints a vivid picture of the joys and struggles of circus life. Highly recommended!

I found this book while digging up history on my grandmother, I was so elated to come across it, as the Author was my grandmothers best friend, and there are alot of stories inside that contain information about my grandmother. Besides that this book, was a quick, easy read, that is light hearted, fun, and adventurous. A tale about two young girls leaving NY to join the circus. Their is lots of cute funny stories about famous people who were with the Cole Bros circus in the 40's. I highly recommend this book.

This is a charming and sweet book . It really gives insight to a bygone era. You really feel the hopes and dreams of this 16 year old girl as she joins the circus hoping for fame and stardom. It was a good read and gives you a different perspective of circus life. I highly recommend adding this well written book to anyones read list.
