   schema:reviewBody ""In Conquistadors Michael Wood travels in the footsteps of some of the greatest of the Spanish adventurers, from Amazonia to Lake Titicaca and from the deserts of North Mexico to the heights of Machu Picchu. He experiences first hand the reality of epic journeys, such as those made by Hernan Cortes, and Francisco and Gonzalo Pizarro, and explores the turbulent and terrifying events surrounding the Spanish conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires. He also retraces Orellana's extraordinary voyage of discovery down the Amazon and Cabeza de Vaca's journey across America to the Pacific." "As well as bringing history alive with text and stunning pictures, Michael Wood grapples with the moral legacy of the European invasion. The stories in Conquistadors are not only of conquest, heroism and greed, but of changes in the way we see the world, in our view of history and civilization, justice and human rights."--Jacket." ;
