History of the Conquest of Peru

History of the Conquest of Peru

by William H. Prescott

  • HISTORY
  • 2002
  • PAPER
  • 816 PAGES

The 1847 classic by the author of the History of the Conquest of Mexico chronicles the expedition of the illiterate butcher Francisco Pizarro into the Andes in search of Inca gold and his clash with the people he finds there with dramatic flourish. Although Prescott's mastery account is thorough on both cultures, it is especially noteworthy for its vivid portrait of the character of the conquistadors.  (AND24, $17.95)
