Details

William Hickling Prescott’s History of the Conquest of Mexico presents the conquest of Mexico between 1519 and 1521 in four volumes. Although blind and having never traveled to the Americas, Prescott’s account of the conquest of the Aztecs is as highly respected by historians today as it was in the 19th century.
