“..they met indians who claimed to be vassals of a ferocious tribe of female warriors, outliers of a civilization of women who dwelt in the distant headwaters…they rode camels, wore the finest woven cloth, and worshipped the divinity of the sun in temples lined with macaw feathers and parrot plumes. to procreate they captured men solely for the purposes of breeding; all male offspring were summarily killed.

…each fought with the power of ten men…

the word amazon is derived from “a-madzon,” meaning without breast, and it had long referred to a legendary nation of women warriors living beyond the known world of the mediterranean who reputedly sliced off their right breast to facilitate the use of the bow in battle.”
