History of the Conquest of Mexico
by William H Prescott

Overview -
One of the most famous history books ever written--and an excellent account of Mexican civilization at the time of the conquest. Here is a rich portrait of Aztec culture, which dominated the many races of Mexico with savage brutality, and of Hernando Cortes and his small party of cavaliers, who succeeded against all odds in defeating them. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the Spaniards were motivated by Aztec gold--not their self-proclaimed "mission of God."
