About this title

Synopsis:

Ranching families reflect a deeply rooted agricultural tradition the day-to-day workings of which have changed little over generations. Many of these children are accomplished farm hands by the age of six or seven and already contributing members of the family business. In this world, work skills define one's identity, and 'making a hand' is the goal of every young cowboy/girl. This book is a tribute to the newest generation of ranchers growing up in New Mexico. Gene Peach has photographed girls and boys from fifty ranching families representing diverse cultural backgrounds, as they work cattle from horseback, perform routine ranch chores, and compete in rodeos. Veteran western writer and cowboy Max Evans writes about his own experiences growing up on a ranch and ponders the realities threatening the continuation of the family ranch. "Making a Hand" is a testament to a remarkable generation of New Mexico residents continuing a legendary and honourable lifestyle.
