About this product
- DescriptionBetween 1539 and 1542, two thousand indigeus Mexicans, led by Spanish explorers, made an armed reconnaissance of what is w the American Southwest. The Spaniards' goal was to seize control of the people of the region and convert them to the religion, ecomy, and way of life of sixteenth-century Spain. The new followers were expected to recognize don Francisco Vazquez de Coronado as their leader. The area's unfamiliar terrain and hostile natives doomed the expedition. The surviving Spaniards returned to Nueva Espana, disillusioned and heavily in debt with a trail of destruction left in their wake that would set the stage for Spain's conflicts in the future.
Flint incorporates recent archaeological and documentary discoveries to offer a new interpretation of how Spaniards attempted to conquer the New World and insight into those who resisted conquest.
