Photographer Lola Lavender-Hardisty, who has been documenting the district for several years, has captured fresh views for this book. Her Stockyards photos have been published in Texas Monthly, Cowboys and Indians Magazine, and Conde Nast Traveler. She recently photographed the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony. Her work, which has won numerous awards, is regularly posted and shared on Facebook, Flickr, and sold on her website. The trailer for the Fort Worth Herd longhorns is wrapped with one of Lavender-Hardisty's images.
