THE MYTH OF ELDORADO
History abounds in examples of peoples pinning their dreams to places beyond the horizon. However, none of these places has ever had the expressive strength of Eldorado.
This Spanish name stirs up images of the European “Age of Discovery”, the glory of a nascent sixteenth century that saw Hernán Cortés and Francisco Pizarro succeed Christopher Columbus, and quest turn into conquest.
