Born to this land book

BORN TO THIS LAND by Skeeter hagler and Red Steagall - Texas Tech University Press (2003)

2004 Will Rogers Medallion for Outstanding Achievement in the Publishing of Cowboy Poetry.

A beautiful clothbound book featuring the acclaimed poetry of Red Steagall, The Official Cowboy Poet of Texas and the Pulitzer Prize winning photos of Skeeter Hagler.

128 pages including 75 black and white photographs, plus 10 poems, examine the traditions passed from generation to generation, while exploring the impact of cowboying on those who choose it as a way of life.

Journeying into "the rugged breaks that skirt the eastern rim of the Llano EstacadoŚWest Texas ranch country at once attractive and repellent to the uninitiated" Steagall and Hagler prove unequivocally that verse and image a re kindred spirits. According to B. Byron Price, director of the Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West, they have succeeded in unifying poetry and photography, allowing us to "understand and interpret the essence of a solitary land and its proud inhabitants."
