The word "vaquero" comes from the Spanish vaca, for cow, and means cowman. Vaqueros tended cattle in Mexico as early as the sixteenth century, yet their influence on American cowboy culture has been widely ignored. Some of the clothing and skills we commonly associate with cowboys actually originated with vaqueros. Black-and-white photographs, prints, and maps. Source list. Glossary. Bibliography. Index.
