A very poignant legend, accepted by most historians as fact, involves the explorer Francisco de Coronado, who in 1716, with his expedition party, wandered through Texas for days without water and would have died had a band of Indians not led them to a stream. Upon finding the water, a padre accompanying the expedition exclaimed, “los brazos de dios!” which means “the arms of God!” Thus, the life-saving body of water became the Brazos.
