Recently published by Done To Death Publications, Evel Comes to Cooperville is a new photo book that captures the action of an Evel Knievel showcase one weekend in Cooperville, circa 1972.  The backstory reads like a book in itself: Author Garrett Colton was rummaging in his grandparent’s attic when he found a box of slides marked “Evel Knievel slides & film, 1972″. Intrigued, he hit up his old boy, who, as it turns out, was close friends with the daredevil. The results are seen for the first time in over 30 years in the ensuing publication. Find it here.
