Synopsis by Alice Day
The early explorers gave little thought to preserving the civilizations of indigenous people, preferring to murder them instead, and to take their riches. When Francisco Pizarro marched into the Incan Empire, he used deceit and other underhanded means to wipe out their culture. He intended to enrich his coffers with their gold. Ten Who Dared: Francisco Pizarro shows the conquistador method of domination over a people who, while not as technically advanced as the Spanish, had produced the most sophisticated civilization in the New World.
