Thatcher quotes from the Popol Vuh to show that the Quiche’s creation account is similar to that of the Bible; he also refers to the Works of Ixtlilxochitl to argue that the accounts of the flood are similar. The fifth part discusses the Tower of Babel and the various colonizations of the Americas.
