Notes on Writing The Walking Riot

Flying Fred Koury spent many years writing The Walking Riot. A lot of time was spent collecting photos and late nights were filled with writing stories that Flying Fred's father would tell him about many interesting bouts and the wrestling of years ago.

He has put his heart into this book. Once you start reading the book, you can really sense the love and admiration that Flying Fred has for his father, Wild Bull Curry.
