Conquistador: Hernan Cortes, King Montezuma, and the Last Stand of the Aztecs
by Buddy Levy Year Published: Challenging
A book that truly proves that actual history is better than fiction. Buddy Levy's account of Hernan Cortes and his conquest of the Aztec empire is one of the most addicting reads I have ever come across. After reading this book, it is easy to see why Spain spent so much time questing for riches during the conquistador period of Texas history.
