Daniel Bergner describes an increasingly contentious relationship between himself and Burl Cain, Warden of Angola Prison in Louisiana. Bergner, a freelance journalist, was attracted to Angola in 1996 by the prison's rodeo, an annual competition with a 32-year history that takes place over the four Sundays in October. Readers will learn something about the operation of old-style prison farms.
