"The Rio Grande! Watch it as it slithers across the wide land, this brown serpent of a river. Giant sloth and mastodon, primitive huntsmen, Spaniards in armor, friars with cross upheld--all drank of its waters.
"Indifferent to man-made marvels, the ageless Rio Grande pursues its course through mountain, mesa and desert, through the land of little rain and plenty of time, through mystery and color and grandeur, on its way to the sea."
Sperry was a prize-winning author who devoted his considerable talent to acquainting young people with stories, many factual, that introduced his readers to heroic virtues.
