Summary James Taggart contrasts how two men--a Spaniard and an Aztec-speaking Mexican--tell such tales as "The Bear's Son." He explores how their stories present different ways of being a man in their respective cultures. He also focuses on how fathers reproduce different forms of masculinity in their sons, showing how fathers who care for their infant sons teach them a relational masculinity based on a connected view of human relationships.
