Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
When Christopher Columbus set foot in the New World, Spain became a major power in the Americas. Yet the settlement of America was rarely as fluid and uncomplicated as it is presented in many children's history books. Michael Burgan presents a complicated and dynamic depiction of the Spanish Conquest of America that includes Columbus's fabled journey in 1492, Hernan Cortes's expedition of Mexico in 1519, Juan Ponce de Leon's exploration of Florida in 1519, and other notable explorers whose search for wealth and new land changed the course of history. The book has a myriad of illustrations, including a fourteenth-century depiction of Marco Polo leaving Venice for China, a map showing the progression of Spanish exploration in North America, and the founding of St. Augustine, the first permanent European settlement in what would become the United States. The Spanish Conquest of America will enchant young historians exploring this topic for the first time, and it is a high quality addition to bring to a library.
