about

This book is an imaginative telling of the history of the San Antonio River, intended to capture the interest of small children, rather than a sober factual and detailed account. Hopefully, kids will like it and learn to relish the colorful past of this river and the city through which it runs. Milo Kearney is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Texas at Brownsville, with a Ph.D. in history from the University of California at Berkeley and fifteen authored books, including "San Antonio's Churches" and two children's books, one about Brownsville for his kids, Kathleen and Sean, and this book about San Antonio for his grandsons Eli, Ben, and Jeremy Anzak and Ian and Collin Kearney. Ben, at age two, was intrigued when Milo first showed him around the Alamo, and, on a trip with his cousins soon after, announced, "This is my Alamo that Grandpa Kearney brought me to."
