Don Quixote and Sancho discover the huge windmills on the plains near Sweetwater, Texas.
Don Quoxte turns to Sancho and says ," You see before you, friend Sancho Panza, some thirty or more lawless giants with whom I mean to do battle."
"What Giants?" asks Sancho.
Don Quixote ignores Sancho's question and shouts at the top of his lungs, "Do not seek to flee, cowards and vile creatures that you are, for it is but a single knight with whom you have to deal."
SLH's notes: My apologizes to the great Spanish author Miguel Cervantes for changing the venue of Don Quixote's famous windmill adventure from the plains of La Mancha , Spain, to the plains of Sweetwater, Tx . If you don't know the outcome of this adventure of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, you can read the outcome in the original Don Quixote.
