Excerpt from The Stories of El Dorado

If mythology is to be taught in the schools at all, surely our own should have consideration, and in familiarizing ourselves with the traditions of El Dorado, we shall have one more incentive for higher living. Ive shall learn that the great souls of the races that have preceded us, in the Americas, have faced the same problems of life, which are the heritage of our common humanity; that within its dark shadows they too have struggled, hoped, and prayed.

No words incorporated into the English lan guage have been fraught with such stupendous con sequences as El Dorado. When the padres attempted to tell the story of the Christ, the natives exclaimed El Dorado, or what the imperfect translations have made El Dorado - the golden. As the ignorant sailors and adventurers had been kept from mutiny by Columbus' promise of gold, it is no wonder that they seized upon the literal meaning instead of the spiritual one.
