Inhaltsangabe: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

Ostriches are snared occasionally, but not often; and jaguars are captured in pits. The ground is cultivated to a certain extent, but the nomadic habits of the Indians prevent them from becoming real agriculturists. "Farming" Agriculture. would be too dignified a term to use for their small attempts to produce a harvest sufficient for their needs. "Gardening" would better describe their labours in this respect. If his crops are damaged by a blight the Indian consults his witch-doctor, who either sends or brings numerous charms which, in process of time, are supposed to drive away the evil and restore fertility to the soil. Unfruitful plants are spat upon to make them bear again, but any method requiring real work seems to be avoided. One reason for the small amount of cultivation lies in the fact that suitable soil is found only in patches, and these are too far apart to admit of any family taking more than one plot for growing their necessary crops. The chief produce of the gardens consists of pumpkins, sweet potatoes, tobacco and mandioca. Maize is largely grown among the Suhin Indians, whose country suits it; but not among the Lenguas to the same extent as the other vegetables. The only gardening implement is the native hoe, and this rough tool, made of extremely hard wood, is used for all purposes. It resembles a small paddle, and is from three to five feet in length. After moving to a new site the Indians visit their old gardens from time to time and carry off the produce; but, as these are not fenced in, the land soon reverts to its natural state, and, at last, is only distinguished from...
