First Edition. Dust now in mylar cover. The word conquistador comes from Spanish and means "he who conquers." The conquistadors were those men who took up arms to conquer, subjugate and convert native populations in the New World. They had to have some money to purchase the tools of their trade, such as weapons, armor, and horses. Many of them were veteran professional soldiers who had fought for Spain in other wars, such as the reconquest of the Moors (1482-1492) or the "Italian Wars" (1494-1559). Fully indexed, map endpapers. Paul Horgan (August 1, 1903 March 8, 1995) was an American author of fiction and non-fiction, most of which was set in the Southwestern United States. He was the recipient of two Pulitzer Prizes for History. The New York Times Review of Books said of him, in 1989: "With the exception of Wallace Stegner, no living American has so distinguished himself in both fiction and history." (Wikipedia) ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 303 pages
