Summary
Text and photographs present the traditions and the annual celebration of the charro, the Mexican cowboy. Charro is the Mexican term for horseman, but for a Mexican a charro is much more than a cowboy. A skilled rider of horses and bulls and bucking broncos, an artist with a lariat, and a model of gentlemanly dress and behavior, the charro is also a living symbol of Mexico's patriotic past. In the rodeo-like sport called la charrerla, male charros and female charras, children and adults, show off their skill and daring. But more than that they are showing off their pride in their country-because to be a charro is to be a Mexican
