Thirst for Grit

Atascosa, Texas

“Since 2007 I have traveled the oft-lonely southwest expanse of this state, following the itinerant ways of small-town rodeo cowboys who live a life of legend and little else. In an ever-more-homogenized modern world, they uphold this Texas cultural tradition, riding nearly every weekend, putting their bodies and heartbeats on the line because they can live no other way.”
