Of Cannibals and Kings collects the very earliest accounts of the native peoples of the Americas, including not only the selections from the writings of the Columbian journeys but also the documents of initial colonial occupation in Haiti, Venezuela, and Guyana, as well as the first ethnographic account of the Ta#xED;nos by the missionary Ram#xF3;n Pan#xE9;. This primal anthropology directly guided a rapacious discovery of the lands of both wild cannibals and golden kings.
