Following in the footsteps of the greatest Spanish adventurers, Michael Wood retraces the path of the conquistadors from Amazonia to Lake Titicaca, and from the deserts of North Mexico to the heights of Machu Picchu. As he travels the same routes as Hernán Cortés, Francisco, and Gonzalo Pizarro, Wood describes the dramatic events that accompanied the epic sixteenth-century Spanish conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires.

He also follows parts of Orellanas extraordinary voyage of discovery down the Amazon and of Cabeza de Vacas arduous journey across America to the Pacific. Few stories in history match these conquests for sheer drama, endurance, and distances covered, and Woods gripping narrative brings them fully to life.Wood reconstructs both sides of the conquest, drawing from sources such as Bernal Diazs eyewitness account, Cortéss own letters, and the Aztec texts recorded not long after the fall of Mexico. Woods evocative story of his own journey makes a compelling connection with the sixteenth-century world as he relates the present-day customs, rituals, and oral traditions of the people he meets. He offers powerful descriptions of the rivers, mountains, and ruins he encounters on his trip, comparing what he has seen and experienced with the historical record.As well as being one of the pivotal events in history, the Spanish conquest of the Americas was one of the most cruel and devastating. Wood grapples with the moral legacy of the European invasion and with the implications of an episode in history that swept away civilizations, religions, and ways of life. The stories in Conquistadors are not only of conquest, heroism, and greed but of changes in the way we see the world, history and civilization, justice and human rights.
