Abstract


The author James Norman is an American who has always lived in Mexico during the summer. He seems to love Mexican - Indian traditions and he is well acquainted with the pre-historic culture as it is shown in his book: "The Obsidian Mirror". "The Obsidian Mirror" is a mysterious story about
an archeologist: Quigley that lives in a small village
in Mexico-San Marcos. He is searching for antiques that
belong to some tribes of pre-historic Indians in order
to find out their mysteries. Quigley becomes so engaged in his work that his mind has reached a stage that is impossible to separate between Quigley the archeologist, and Quigley as an ancient Indian. The culture, the myth, the sensation of
Omen - characteristics of the Indians are within himself. As a result, Quigley acts sometimes as a real Indian.
