Latin-American Mythology

This edition presents a thorough and comprehensive study on the folklore and legends of the native inhabitants of Central and South America. The materials for the study of native traditions are striking and various, from the usual demoniac beliefs and animistic credulities, to elaborate formations such as the Aztec and Maya pantheons, or the enigmatic Peruvian dogma. The study also explores the mythology of Caribbean people, as well as the legends from Amazon, Brazil, and the tales from the far south of the continent.

Webster's Dictionary from 1903–1908, then became professor of philosophy at the University of Nebraska.
