Most of the world's great civilisations have their own versions of how the world was created and most have a tale of the great flood. From Ancient Egypt to Assyria, India, the Chinese, the Celts, the Mayans and so too the Incas of Peru. That there are so many similarities in these stories from disparate nations around the world is truly amazing.
This small volume contains selected translations of Incan Mythology, mainly carried out by Sir Clements Markham. Within you will find the Incan creation stories as well as stories of the "Coming of the Incas", "The First Settlers of the Valley of Cuzco", "Fables of the Second Age of Creation", "The Festival of the Sun", "Incan Prayers to Viracocha" and more.
