Working from original Spanish source documents and Cortez's own letters, Innes re-creates the factual history of the conquest of America, from its beginnings in the court of Ferdinand and Isabella to the bloody aftermath of the Aztec-Toltec and Inca kingdoms. This is the story of the birth of one world and the death of another, told by a master story-teller.
