View all copies of this ISBN edition:

1929. Author, artist, scientist, and leader of many expeditions to South and Central America, Mr. Verrill has used his talents, his knowledge, and his experience to their fullest in reconstructing from the dull archives of history the whole vivid spectacle of the Spanish conquerors and their relentless enslavement of the New World. The Spanish conquerors and the Spanish conquest were the outcome of conditions and circumstances which have never been duplicated in the world's history. A New World had been discovered, and the tide of exploration, adventure, and search for riches that hitherto had flowed to the east was immediately diverted to the west. Reports of gold and precious stones fired the imagination and excited the cupidity of men to an incredible degree. In all the history of America there is no chapter more replete with adventure, romance, daring, and, unfortunately ruthless cruelty and destruction.
