This is Evie Patton, photographed for the Bullock Texas States History Museum exhibit Enduring Women, which will open in Austin, Texas, this Saturday. Enduring Women, a photography and oral history exhibit at the Bullock, features contemporary Texas women who work the land as ranchers, farmers, and cowgirls. Hear their stories in their own words and witness the daily lives of these remarkable Texas women who have endured sometimes for generations in their stewardship of the land.
