Bea is Golden!

Our own Beatriz Terrazas has won the Gold Award (and 500 bucks) in the Society of American Travel Writers' Lowell Thomas Awards competition. If you remember her series on traveling the Rio Grande, her triumph in the Special Packages/Projects category is hardly a big surprise. Here are the judges' comments:
Beatriz Terrazas, "The Call of the River," The Dallas Morning News
The Rio Grande is much more than the shallow river that separates Texas from Mexico. Terrazas travels with photographer Erich Schlegel to the Continental Divide, to the source of the nation's third-longest river and follows it south, elegantly telling the story of the Rio Grande and of people whose lives are touched by it. Their stories reflect some of the most difficult issues of the American Southwest.

"Sometimes you have to change things that are perfectly good just to make them your own."
