远古时代，在我国北部，有一座巍峨雄伟的成都载天山，山上住着一个巨人氏族叫夸父族。夸父族的首领叫做夸父，他身高无比，力大无穷，意志坚强，气概非凡。那时候，世界上荒凉落后，毒蛇猛兽横行，人们生活凄苦。夸父为了本部落的人产能够活下去，每天都率领众人跟洪水猛兽搏斗。夸父常常将捉到的凶恶的黄蛇挂在自己的两只耳朵上作为装饰，引以为荣。 有一年，天大旱。火一样的太阳烤焦了地上的庄稼，晒干了河里的流水。人们热得难受，实在无法生活。夸父见到这种情景，就立下雄心壮志，发誓要把太阳捉住，让它听从人们的吩咐，更好地为大家服务。 一天，太阳刚刚从海上升起，夸父就从东海边上迈开大步开始了他逐日的征程。 太阳在空中飞快地转，夸父在地上疾风一样地追。夸父不停地追呀追，饿了，摘个野果充饥；渴了，捧口河水解渴；累了，也仅仅打盹。他心里一直在鼓励自己：“快了，就要追上太阳了，人们的生活就会幸福了。”他追了九天九夜，离太阳越来越近，红彤彤、热辣辣的太阳就在他自己的头上啦。 夸父又跨过了一座座高山，穿过了一条条大河，终于在禺谷就要追上太阳了。这时，夸父心里兴奋极了。可就在他伸手要捉住太阳的时候，由于过度激动，身心憔悴，突然，夸父感到头昏眼花，竟晕过去了。他醒来时，太阳早已不见了。 夸父依然不气馁，他鼓足全身的力气，又准备出发了。可是离太阳越近，太阳光就越强烈，夸父越来越感到焦躁难耐，他觉得他浑身的水分都被蒸干了，当务之急，他需要喝大量的水。于是，夸父站起来走到东南方的黄河边，伏下身子，猛喝黄河里的水，黄河水被他喝干了，他又去喝渭河里的水。谁知道，他喝干了渭河水，还是不解渴。于是，他打算向北走，去喝一个大泽的水。可是，夸父实在太累太渴了，当他走到中途时，身体就再也支持不住了，慢慢地倒下去，死了。 夸父死后，他的身体变成了一座大山。这就是“夸父山”，据说，位于现在河南省灵宝县西三十五里灵湖峪和池峪中间。夸父死时扔下的手杖，也变成了一片五彩云霞一样的桃林。桃林的地势险要，后人把这里叫做“桃林寨”。 夸父死了，他并没捉住太阳。可是天帝被他的牺牲、勇敢的英雄精神所感动，惩罚了太阳。从此，他的部族年年风调雨顺，万物兴盛。夸父的后代子孙居住在夸父山下，生儿育女，繁衍后代，生活是非常幸福
