Gods of the River by Lars Samson Before it was a saint, the San Pedro River was divine in its bounty. Before it had a name, it was blessed by every bird and beast for hundreds of miles. Humans came under its care and worshipped its generosity. Feared its wrath. Immersed themselves in it and gave thanks. River accepted all who came ó even those bringing other gods. Old-World man arrived and christened River for a god he brought. He came to maintain it and that river still runs free. Ignoring when it dwindles below ground. River now product ó piped to strangers who donít know its sacred centuries. Since man is god of the river.
