The song that inspired this:
Know ye that at the right hand of the Indies
there is an island named California, very
close to that part of the terrestrial Paradise,
which was inhabited by black women,
without a single man among them, and that
they lived in the manner of Amazons. They
were robust of body, with strong and
passionate hearts and great virtues. The
island itself is one of the wildest in the world
on account of the bold and craggy rocks.
Their weapons were all made of gold. The
island everywhere abounds with gold and
precious stones, and upon it no other
metal was found.
