PENDLETON — Vaunda Micheaux Nelson, author of “Let ’Er Buck,” is featured during a pair of book signings.

The children’s book, which is illustrated by Gordon C. James, shares the story of black cowboy George Fletcher. He was deemed the “people’s champion” after competing in the 1911 Pendleton Round-Up saddle bronc finals that ended in controversy.

Nelson will sign and sell books Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Roy Raley Park, 1205 S.W. Court Ave. During the second appearance, Nelson will sign copies of her book and make a presentation during Heritage Station Museum’s Terrific Tuesday. The free event is Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 7-8:30 p.m. at 108 S.W. Frazer Ave., Pendleton.
