This essay is part of my "Interior"" project. I travelled to the quilombola community "Lagoa da Pedra" in Tocantins, to Rio Grande do Sul to see the Gaúchos and to the dryest area of Piauí to stay with the Boiadeiros.

 

"Boiadeiro” is the name used to define the Brazilian cowboys from the northeast region of Brazil, is a desert and arid area. 
A poor and dry place where only the strongest survives.
