Alyssa Banta on the BookPeople Podcast

9781625858481_9783c This week’s episode of The BookPeople Podcast features award-winning photojournalist and writer, Alyssa Banta, with her latest, The Texas Ranch Sisterhood.

Her talk concerns the year she spent following more than a dozen Texas women through their grueling daily routines, from the messy confines of the working chute to the sprawling reaches of the back pasture. They cook supper and feed bulls. At any given time, they wear the hats-and the gloves-of geologist, veterinarian, lawyer and mechanic. They are fierce and feminine and powerful.

The result of this unprecedented access is an intimate portrait of the challenges and achievements of the ranch women of the Lone Star State, along with the land and livestock that sustain them.
