Cowboys near Lajitas, 1916
Big Bend, with its long and rich cultural history, is home to many stories, tales and legends. While almost all the stories told contain some degree of truth and authenticity many of the tales and legends from the region are probability more fiction then fact.

Human history in this harsh desert environment is a complex blend of cultures, boundaries, and the limits of economic and personal adventures.
