Vaquero life was one of Edward BoreinÕs favorite subjects. One of the few cowboy artists to make his home and living in California, Borein was a daily witness to the world of the vaquero, and noted its similaritiesÑand differencesÑwith the way of the American cowboy. In Vaquero Pack Train, three Mexican cowboys move a train of laden mules through the desert. The Vaqueros themselves ride mules rather than horses, and the crossed bandoleros on the lead rider suggest that they anticipate trouble.
