And as they were all hungry, they went looking for fish. But the next day they heard again the beating on the water and saw the steamer pass by again, making a great noise and throwing out so much smoke that the sky became obscured.

La Guerra de Los Yacares : Horacio Quiroga :

No steamer would be able to pass through there and always, always, there would be fish. There was a fearsome explosion and a huge cannon ball fell right in the middle of the dyke. They surfaced, dived, jumped over the stones, always running and dragging the torpedo, which created waves like a ship owing to the speed of the passage. But the steamer returned the next day, and when the alligators looked at the vessel they were speechless with surprise; it was not the same steamer.

What new steamer was that? In recent years I self-published a trilogy of novels dealing, principally, with the themes of healing and reconciliation.

It was a really formidable dyke. And they saw pass before them that immense thing, full of smoke and beating the water, noracio steamer that negotiated the river for the first time.

He then called to the alligator that slept at his side. Here comes the whale! Two or three trunks were blown to bits that went flying in the air and at once there followed another cannon ball, and another and another, and each one blew another section of the dyke into splinters, until there remained nothing of the dyke.
