Beschreibung

FIRST CANADIAN EDITION. 338 pages with a glossary to the rear. With 24 sepia full page illustrations and pictorial endpapers. Native American legend and lore. Preface "In romances of the aborigines of the so-called New World there is usually presented savage man or woman modified as may be by the Influence of European mythologies in various authorized forms. But, certain people of this New World possessed at least a semi-civilization centuries before the coming of white conquerors. When man ceases to be nomadic, builds houses of stone and mortar, terrace upon terrace,- walled and fortressed against the enemy,- when he has fields of growing grain, textile fabrics, decorated pottery, a government that is a republic, a priesthood trained in complex ritual, a well stocked pantheon, a certain understanding of astronomy and psychic phenomena, he may withal be called barbarian, even as was Abraham on Moriah barbaric when the altar of his god called for sacrifice of his only son. But a people of such culture could not with truth be called savage. The tale told here has to do with these same historic barbarians. That there is more of depth to the background of American Indian life than is usually suggested by historians has been made clear of two tribes by Dr. Le Plongeon in his Sacred Mysteries of the May as and Quiches 11500 Years Ago. Similar mysteries and secret orders exist today in the tribes of the Mexicos and Arizona." Book - in Very Good brown pictorial boards - front & spine decorated & lettered in blue & pale green, with photograph inset to front - some marking to the back board with slight rubbing and bumping to the corners, slight rubbing and bumping to the extreme ends of the spine, unfortunately the publisher's name to spine is at the extreme foot & as a result only half of the name remains.
