Cover : A group of late twentieth-century pioneers in the midst of a multiday trek on horseback and by wagon to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, c. 1970. Photo by Geoff Winningham and from William C. Martin and Geoff Winningham, Going Texan: The Days of the Houston livestock Show and Rodeo (Toronto: Herzig-Somerville, 1972), 30. In this issue, Andrew C. Baker explores the ways suburban Texans such as these riders chose to emphasize western tropes that downplayed the region’s southern heritage in “From Rural South to Metropolitan Sunbelt: Creating a Cowboy Identity in the Shadow of Houston.”
