Overview

This text shines a spotlight on the story of the Spanish fighter-turned-explorer, the conquistador. Comprehensive coverage is given to what it meant to be a conquistador as well as the conquistador's goals: gold, God, and glory. In this title, the reader is taken past the initial phase of land discovery into a thought-provoking exploration of the later stages of colonial land acquisition and European authority over indigenous peoples.
