Cortés then set out to the Mexican interior on his march to Tenochtitlán, sometimes resorting to force, sometimes showing amity toward the local native Americans, but always careful to keep conflict to a minimum because his goal was the riches of the city. Since the nation of Tlaxcala was engaged in a chronic war with the Aztec Empire, its leaders realized it would be to their advantage to become allies of Cortés, thus providing him with several thousand warriors

Spanish conquest of the New World was justified morally through self-serving arguments for Christianizing indigenous peoples and politically through the grandiose division of the known world between Spain and Portugal by Pope Alexander VI at the Treaty at Tordesillas in 1494. Departure for the New World.

Hernán (or Hernando) Cortés was born in 1485 in Medellín, western Spain. He initially studied law but left university to make his fortune in the Americas. It is thought that Cortés’ arrival coincided with an Aztec prophecy about a white-skinned god arriving from the east, which would explain why Montezuma welcomed Cortés and gave him lavish gifts.

The author, Gina De Angelis, does a pretty good job detailing the conquest of Mexico by Cortes.There is a chronolgy and glossary at the end of the book that will benefit many young students of history. Teachers will find the glossary especially helpful for teaching across the curriculum. The are a few colorful pictures that bring the story to life but the book could have used a few more. The author does a good job of incorporating a sense of the times and explaining relationships in the old and new world. This biography of Cortes explains his part in history, bringing him to life from a young man until his death and all his adventures along the way. As an introduction to Cortes, especially for a young reader, this book is pretty good. If a student has to do a report this is a good source coupled with suggested furhter reading like Hernan Cortes: The Life of a Spanish Conquistador (Graphic Nonfiction) or The Sad Night: The Story of an Aztec Victory and a Spanish Loss. Although the book is pretty accurate in it's assessment of the conquest, with the roles played by the indigenous tribes in helping the Spaniards etc., one minor thing was glossed over. The role of La Malinche or as she is called in the book, by her Spanish name(she was not)Donna Marina, is not emphasized enough nor are the repercussions of her assistance. There is no mention of the fact that Mexicans consider her a traitor. To the books credit it does say that without La Maliches help the mission of Cortes might have been unsuccessful. This book is recommended for young readers in the middle school range and is recommended for school and community libraries.

the best complete story of Hernando Cortes that I have read at this level for elementary students - There are several little known facts that help complete the picture of who Cortes was.
