Excerpt from Joaquin by Icon Group International
Use in Literature Joaquin Fort San Joaquin saluted with seven guns; the Juno returned the compliment with nine. -Gertrude Atherton in Rezanov. The streets of the west Sierras sloping toward the San Joaquin are long and winding, but from the east, my country, a day's ride carries one to the lake regions. -Mary Austin in The Land of Little Rain. In the early morning you are aware of slowly rounding the curves of the San Joaquin River. -Thomas Dykes Beasley in A Tramp Through The Bret Harte Country. Joaquin, the Saddle King. -Irvin S. Cobb in A Plea for Old Cap Collier. He lay wriggling; the Portuguese struck and struck until he lay quite still; then we saw Joaquin Santos kneel, and rub his stick carefully on the still thing's clothes, as a man might wipe his boots. -E.W. Hornung in Dead Men Tell No Tales. He was a Portuguese of sixty or thereabouts, Senhor Joaquin Santos by name; at first it was incredible to me that he had no title, so noble was his bearing; but very soon I realized that he was one of those to whom adventitious honors can add no lustre. -E.W. Hornung in Dead Men Tell No Tales. There was a pause, in which it would seem that Joaquin Santos had his ear at the empty keyhole. -E.W. Hornung in Dead Men Tell No Tales. Big, hearty Joaquin Fernandez! A large place he occupied in Rivera's visions. -Jack London in The Night-Born. In California a man may pick berries in Siskiyou, peaches in Santa Clara, grapes in the San Joaquin, and oranges in Los Angeles, going from job to job as the season advances, and travelling a thousand miles ere the season is done. -Jack London in War of the Classes. It all happened in a flash, for the next minute Antioch was behind and we were heeling it up the San Joaquin toward Merryweather, six miles away. -Jack London in Tales of the Fish Patrol.
