R. Matthews

The native people of the Americas never had a chance against European soldiers. The troops of the conquistadors had guns and armor, not to mention new diseases! As readers are drawn through the bloody history of early settlement in the New World, they'll learn about the conquistadors' wish for gold and to convert the native peoples to Christianity. Chapters focusing on major conquistadors--including de Coronado, Pizarro, Cortes, and more--incorporate major topics from the social studies curriculum. - Gr. 5-9
