Sabine, Sabine River(noun)
a river in eastern Texas that flows south into the Gulf of Mexico
A river that flows through eastern Texas and western Louisiana into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Sabine River is a river, 510 miles long, in the U.S. states of Texas and Louisiana. In its lower course, it forms part of the boundary between the two states and empties into Sabine Lake, an estuary of the Gulf of Mexico. The river formed part of the United States-Mexican as well as the United States-Republic of Texas international boundary during the early 19th century. The upper reaches of the river flow through the prairie country of northeast Texas. Along much of its lower reaches, it flows through pine forests along the Texas-Louisiana border, and the bayou country near the Gulf Coast. The river drains an area of 9,756 square miles, of which 7,426 square miles is in Texas and 2,330 square miles in Louisiana. It flows through an area of abundant rainfall and discharges the largest volume of any river in Texas. The name Sabine comes from the Spanish word for cypress, in reference to the extensive growth of such trees along the lower river. The river flows through an important petroleum-producing region, and the lower river near the Gulf is among the most industrialized areas of the southeastern United States.
