Reviews

"Of all the books inspired by the Columbian quincentenary, this is easily one of the most challenging. Bodmer uses early Spanish chronicles to take the reader on a journey of exploration. . . . A richly detailed analytical history of the gradual awakening of a critical consciousness concerning accepted versions of the discovery and conquest of America."

Canadian Journal of History

"A quite splendid book."
