[SR: 168016], Paperback, [EAN: 9781846079726], BBC Books, BBC Books, Book, [PU: BBC Books], 2010-03-04, BBC Books, Follows in the footsteps of some of the greatest of the Spanish adventurers travelling from the forests of Amazonia to Lake Titicaca, the deserts of North Mexico, the snowpeaks of the Andes and the heights of Machu Picchu. This work explores the turbulent and terrifying events surrounding the Spanish conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires., "Staggering brutality, heroism and endurance, and immeasurable greed", is the stuff of this 16th-century saga of the cultured Aztecs and Incas in their tribulation with the barbarous Spanish, as told by Michael Wood. He affirms these adventures were "Less of a journey more of a miracle", and certainly the Conquistadors battling through unexplored forests, paddling uncharted rivers, succumbing to altitude and starvation, and perpetrating torture and murder in the search for El Dorado is supernormal if not supernatural. Not satisfied by early finds of gold, these acquisitive prototype guerrillas drove ever on in their determination and desire for more, always at the cost of lives, even including their own relatives.Complementary to the recent television series in which Michael Wood travelled the routes taken through South and Central America by Cortes, Francisco and Gonzalo Pizzaro, and Amazon journey of Orellana, his concise visualisation and description of the destructive schemes, actions and violence of the Conquistadors, the suffering of their bearers, the impact of smallpox and the breathtakingly beautiful terrain of the Peruvian landscape, make this audio informative and satisfying in its own right.

Michael Wood:
Conquistadors - Paperback

2010, ISBN: 9781846079726

ID: 9781846079726

The Spanish conquest of the Americas in the 16th century was one of the most important and cataclysmic events in history. Spanish expeditions endured incredible hardships in order to open up the lands of the 'New World', and few stories in history can match these for drama and endurance. In Conquistadors, Michael Wood follows in the footsteps of some of the greatest of the Spanish adventurers travelling from the forests of Amazonia to Lake Titicaca, the deserts of North Mexico, the snowpeaks of the Andes and the heights of Machu Picchu. He experiences the epic journeys of Cortes, Pizarro, Orellana and Cabeza de Vaca, and explores the turbulent and terrifying events surrounding the Spanish conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires. Wood brings these stories to vivid life, highlighting both the heroic accomplishments and the complex moral legacy of the European invasion. Conquistadors is Michael Wood at his best - thoughtful, provocative and gripping history. Books Michael Wood|Paperback|Ebury Publishing|04/03/2010, Ebury Publishing
