The Wild West evokes the Texas spirit like no other. It’s recently served as the narrative for new hit T.V. shows. A rich part of our past, the modern cowboy continues to roam the land like generations before.  Women love him and men want to be him. Hitch up and journey with us across the state, and parts of Mexico, where photographer Gray Hawn captures the modern cowboy in his many moods, circa the here and now.

Here are a few of our quotes that represent the spirit of the Texas Cowboy:

“There’s a little cowboy in all of us, a little frontier.” Louis L’Amour

“No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.” Winston Churchill

“A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!”   King Richard III
