Conquistador Voices: The Spanish Conquest of the Americas as Recounted Largely by the Participants, Volume II Summary

The Spanish Conquest: What Really Happened?

If you like to use your drive time for education by audiobook, consider this book for widening and deepening your view of an event you studied briefly in school - the Spanish conquest of the Americas.

Conquistador Voices, which relies more heavily than most works of this kind on first-person accounts, neither glamorizes nor condemns the conquistadors. Somewhat in the manner of a modern film documentary, it treats the so-called conquest as an historical event that’s worth learning about for its own sake, with most of the moralizing left to the listener.

In two volumes, Conquistador Voices covers five high-profile personages and their respective roles in this epochal event. Volume one features the voyages of Christopher Columbus and the conquest of Mexico by Hernán Cortés, while volume two provides an in-depth look at the conquest of Peru by Francisco Pizarro, the years-long desert odyssey of Álvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca, and the North American expedition of Hernando de Soto. Both volumes get deeply into details of Native American life in those times.

Spice up your drive time with this entertaining and educational audiobook excursion into the past.
