When you buy Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch, you’re giving back to Texas cowboys. A portion of the proceeds from every book sold benefits The Waggoner Ranch Cowboys Fund. This fund was set up by the woking cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch. In the past, these funds have been used for purchasing livestock from local kids participating in stock shows, scholarships, and medical expenses due to on the job injuries.
Jeremy Enlow was inspired to make the book after visiting the ranch. “I wanted to document this way of life for younger generations before it disappears,” he says. He photographed and published the book independently to tell the cowboys’ stories. Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch is not affiliated with the current or past owners of the ranch; the lack of affiliation let Jeremy tell the story just as he saw it.
A Changing Way of Life on the Ranch
We’re even more grateful Jeremy documented the ranch after Stan Kroenke’s controversial decision to force Lake Diversion residents out of their homes put the ranch in the news last week. This book captures the final months of family ownership on the Waggoner Ranch — and a way of life that is rapidly changing. Earlier this year, the new owner closed the bunkhouse for single cowboys and the cook shack.
Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch tells the story of the living legends who work on the largest ranch under one fence in the United States. As life on the ranch begins to change, we are proud to be able to give back to the cowboys who work so hard and inspire us.
