Description

Dazzled by the sight of the vast treasures being unloaded at Seville's docks in 1537, Pedro de Cieza de Leun decided to join the Spanish effort in the New World, become an explorer and write what would become the earliest historical account of the conquest of Peru. This book provides an English translation of the third of his four-part history of Peru. It offers a thorough record of the birth of modern Andean America, describing in detail the exploration of the Pacific coast of South America, led by Francisco Pizarro and Diego de Almagro, the imprisonment and death of the Inca Atahualpa, the Indian resistance and the ultimate Spanish domination.
