About This Item

New York: Holt,Rinehart and Winston, 1970. This glowing book grew out of Paul Horgan's Pulitzer Prize winning "Great River: The Rio Grande in North American History". It is of the great rivers three peoples that Paul Horgan speaks. Of the Indian, who was the first to live at the rivers edge, of the Spaniard, the Indian's dauntless and often cruel conqueror, of the Anglo-American, with their vigorous ingenuity, as hard as the hardest thing that could happen to them, who brought a wild new strain to the river kingdom. These three Southwestern cultures - the Indian, the Latin and the Anglo-American.... are the 'heroic triad'. Mr. Horgan carries the reader down through the centuries with the great river, presenting the clash, the attraction, the repulsion and the final acceptance of the three peoples of each other and the vast region ruled by the Rio Grande. Repleat with bibliography followed by the index. Coral cloth boards. Embossed representational design to front board....gilt title lettering to spine. Map endpapers. No ownership markings. Jacket design by Jay Smith. A solid, square copy.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.
