Description
 
After the discovery of the New World by Columbus in 1492, Spain sent numerous soldiers to explore the unknown lands. This book is about one of the most famous of these conquistadors, Hernando Cortes. He convinced the king to let him explore the large peninsula known as Yucatan (the land called Mexico today). With a small army of a few hundred soldiers, Cortes invaded the mighty Aztec empire. Although the Aztecs greatly outnumbered the Spaniards, Cortesís men were able to capture the emperor & conquer the natives. The arrival of Hernando Cortes in 1519 helped shape Mexico today. Like many of the other Spanish conquistadors, he was brutal in his treatment of the natives. However, he was also a fearless general & a brave explorer. Illus.
