About this Book

In this first major English-language interpretation of charrerĂ­a, Kathleen Mullen Sands describes the evolution of this equestrian tradition, highlighting the role of horsemen and women throughout Mexico's history. For those who believe cowboy culture and rodeo represent historic horsemanship in the United States, CharrerĂ­a Mexicana reveals a festival of equal complexity and distinction.
