About this title


Excerpt from Children of the Sun

Far to the Southwest, in the Sierra Madre range of the Rocky Mountains, just beyond the crest of "the grand Continental Divide," which forms the spinal column of the North American continent, in the midst of the thirsty desert, eight thousand feet above the level of the sea, is a little town, inhabited by a curious people who have furnished an interesting problem for ethnologists during the last three centuries, and are now attracting more attention than ever before. At the time of the conquest of Cortez it was called Cibola, meaning the city of the buffalo, but on the maps of to-day it appears as Zuni.

Amazing stories were told of the wealth and grandeur of its people - stories that excited the avarice of the whole empire of Spain, and drew upon them the assaults of a mighty army, excited by prospects of plunder, compared to which the hoarded gold and the silver-crested temples of the Montezumas were the merest trifle.
