Summary
A new edition of the mid-20th century popular classic of a Spanish nobleman who accompanies Cortez to conquer Mexico. "Torrid, non-stop adventure. . . . First-rate, " said Time. It had 20 hardcover printings, became a Tyrone Power movie. "Accurate, meticulously researched history, and a sympathetic, nuanced account of a young man's moral education, " says Pulitzer winner Jonathan Yardley. "It should be appealing to younger readers now . . . while older readers will be impressed by how superior it is in literary terms to most popular fiction today."
