Riassunto: 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.
L'autore: George Ancona has produced more than eighty books for children. His vivid, award-winning photo essays invite children to enter into new cultures and explore new ideas, to value the world of work, and to appreciate themselves and others. He has said about his art, "as a photographer, I can participate in other people's lives... (thereby) producing something that can be shared and has a life of its own." Mr. Ancona's awards include a Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year Citation for Handtalk Birthday, a Parent's Choice Award for The Piñata Maker, and an Outstanding Science Trade Book Citation for The Golden Tamarind Comes Home. Born in Brooklyn of Mexican parents, Mr. Ancona now lives in New Mexico.
