KIRKUS REVIEW

Another in the American Background series for Catholics, aged 10-15, the conquest of Mexico and the poignant story of the death of Montezuma, the Indian King, constitute the climax of a narrative which contrasts the personality and exploits of Hernando Cortez with Fra Bartolome de Olmedo, his chaplain and confidante. The friar represents nobility and goodness completely. Adventure, exotic geographical locale and an exciting period offer sustenance for reader interest.
