What cannot be lost, what to me seem of more worth than the dead hero Guatemoc's gems and jars of gold, are the memories of true friendship shown to us far away beneath the shadow of the Slumbering Woman, and it is in gratitude for these that I ask permission to set your name within a book which were it not.

Now glory be to God who has given us the victory! It is true the strength of Spain is shattered her ships are sunk or fled the sea has swallowed her soldiers and her sailors by hundreds and by thousands and England breathes again.

The story is based on history and, with the author's nimble imagination, it becomes interesting and compelling. I skipped over some detail, but overall the book is a good read.

I hadn't read this Haggard novel before. But like all the other works by him, I enjoyed it immensely. As in the others that I've read, the main character has the physical and moral courage that seems out of place in today's world. Would that there were more of it.

I bought this book on a whim because the title sounded interesting to me. I found it to be very interesting and was not able to put it down.

Gives another view of Cortes in Mexico and a good description of Montezuma's empire and culture at the time of the Spanish invasion.

Great condition!

Kept me on the edge of suspense until I finished it. Sometimes it was hard to slosh through a dull part or several, but you never could predict how the story would come out.
Very descriptive of the conquest of Mexico!
