Artist's Description

Closeup of a large handle on a railroad car reveals a golden river, a desert valley, the story of the Old West and a search for El Dorado.

The Search for El Dorado

Gaily bedight
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old
This knight so bold
And o’er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow
‘Shadow’ said he,
‘Where can it be
This land of Eldorado?’

‘Over the mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,’
The shade replied,
‘If you seek for Eldorado!’
