    Fantastic Historical Piece

    This is a very well written piece on the Spanish conquest of Peru in the early 16th century. Prescott provides an in-depth account of the history of the Inca Empire and the unfortunate demise which abruptly ended one of the greatest cultures of the ancient world. Many parts read like a novel and the parts that don't (such as background history) are still very entertaining and interesting. Prescott touches on the cultural differences and describes the tension and consequences of these encounters.

    Even though this book flows and describes many of the events, a background on the subject matter is helpful. For me, all this included was a brief lecture in class and watching Guns, Germs & Steel. I would recommend this to readers who (like myself) want to become historians or study history in college. For the average reader, this book provides a wonderful account of the Inca and their encounters with the new world.

    I have yet to read Prescott's other book, History of the Conquest of Mexico, but I plan to within the next few months. These two books are essentials for anyone even remotely interested in history.
