Conquistadors

During the European quest to conquer the “New World” of the Americas in the 16th century, Spain was no exception. 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 Americans.
