Texas professional photographer Jeremy Enlow was granted rare access to the
Waggoner Ranch, the largest ranch in the United States under one fence, for five
months in 2015. In November 2015 Jeremy published a hardcover coffee table
photography book, Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch. Over 3,000 books were sold
the first three months. The book, now in its third printing, is being labeled as one
of the top selling coffee table books currently in North America by industry
experts. The books, which were all printed in Texas, have been purchased in 49 of
the 50 states and numerous countries overseas.
These rare portraits are the Waggoner cowboys who ride the trails of their forbearers, living a life and practicing skills that have almost disappeared. They ride the trails of their forbearers, living a life and practicing skills that have almost disappeared. They ride for the prestigious reversed Triple D brand of the Waggoner Ranch, the largest ranch within one fence in the United States. Besides its cowboys, the ranch is renowned for its history, horses, cattle, oil and of course its 510,572 acres.
The cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch are living legends, men who embody the attributes of the lean and dusty riders who braved the wild to make room for a herd. A little more than 160 years later the Waggoner cowboys manage thousands of cattle from 11line camps connected by more than 2,000 miles of road within the ranch. These 26 cowboys are the living image of the men who rode for the Waggoners before them and the passing glimpse of fading history.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the Waggoner Ranch Cowboys Fund.

Jeremy grew up in Granbury, Texas, and was first published in the Hood County News when he was ten years old. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Texas, majoring in photojournalism. He currently lives in Weatherford, Texas.
