About the book (from Google):
Lewis Spence (1874-1955), one of the world’s great mythologists, specialized in the myths of Latin America. In this classic volume, he not only recounts a rich selection of the myths themselves, but discusses their meaning and significance for the cultures that produced them. Among the Mexican myths included are those of Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca; Tlaloc, the Rain-God; creation legends of the ancient Mexicans, the Mixteca and Zapoteca; the Mexican Noah; and more. Among the Peruvian myths considered are the Inca legends of The Vision of Yupanqui, The Bride Bird and Thonapa. First published in 1913, the book is enhanced by more than 60 photos and illustrations.
