Product Overview

The myths of the Antillas and Lucayas are found only in fragmentary hints or casual allusions running through overlying narratives of the conquerors'' adventures. The author pieced these fragments together bit by bit to produce a consistent whole. The stories are nuggets that still have much ore clinging to them, but should be placed in settings for safeguarding. The book is divided into three categories: myths of savage period, prior to conquest, probably from 10th century; Indian legends of the conquest period, 15th to 16th centuries; and Negro slave myths of the Spanish period, tales of lost treasure, 16th to 19th centuries.
