The Hall of State at Fair Park Presents Vaquero: Genesis of the Texas Cowboy Exhibit

Sep 29, 2016 - Oct 23, 2016 @ 10:00am - 5:00pm

In the early 1970's, noted Texas historian Joe Frantz offered Bill Wittliff a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit a ranch in northern Mexico where the vaqueros still worked cattle in traditional ways. Wittliff photographed the vaqueros as they went about these daily chores that had changed little since the first Mexican cowherders learned to work cattle from a horse's back.
