Highly readable account of Coronado's explorations

If you enjoy reading about first-contact experiences between European (esp. Spanish) conquerors and native american indians, then you will definitely like this book. The book gives some essential biographical information about Coronado, but focuses on his journey from Mexico deep into the southwest of the present-day United States. Like other Spanish conquistadores, Coronado was searching (vainly) for gold and glory, but ended up finding neither. Especially interesting are the accounts of Coronado's dealings with native american indians. I strongly recommmend this book. The back cover gives favorable reviews from a number of publications, including the NY Times and the LA Times.
