Charro: The Mexican Cowboy

Overview

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.

Overview

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 charrería, 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.

Text and photographs present the traditions and the annual celebration of the charro, the Mexican cowboy.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
This beautiful and informative photo-essay book, by an award-winning author/photographer, invites us into the color, pageantry and skill of the annual festivities of "el dia del charro" in Guadalajara Mexico. We accompany young girls as well as boys as they prepare for and take part in the charreada, a series of riding and roping events that predate the rodeo. The many dramatic color photographs really bring this celebration to life. Also available in Spanish, a glossary is included.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4Ancona returns with another outstanding photo-essay. This time he visits Guadalajara, Mexico on el da del charro, a day devoted to celebrating horsemanship. He gives brief historical background on la charrera, now a national sport akin to the North American rodeo, and considers the riding and roping skills needed. The author describes the events that comprise the competition and discusses the training necessary to become a charro or a charra. He concludes with mention of the days parade and returns to the arena to take a look at the childrens charreada events. Anconas pictures just keep getting better and better, moving readers forward with motion, color, and excitement.
