Item description for El Vaquero Real: The Original American Cowboy by John Dyer...
The vaquero, descended from an illustrious line of mounted riders, can trace his ancestry from the North African riders of Morocco, hundreds of years ago, to the original vaqueros in Spain, and finally to Mexico. He came north with the Spanish land grants of the 18th century into what became known as Texas. El Vaquero Real is a mosaic of images, impressions and history of the life that was and the life as it is today. It is a tribute to the vaquero - the history, heritage, style, equipment, camaraderie, and philosophy of life of these extraordinary men. The launching of the book will be accompanied by a museum exhibition tour to honor the rich vaquero tradition.
