1859 Hernando De Soto Native American Indians GOLD
Item Details
Description
1859 Hernando De Soto Native American Indians GOLD CONQUISTADOR Life & Adventures



Hernando de Soto was, perhaps, the most famous Spanish explorer who is remembered for leading an expedition into the American Southeast and Peru in search of gold. In 1858, American historian Lambert Wilmer published an enormously popular biographical account of the life and conquests of de Soto, much of which is dedicated to illustrating the massacres caused by battles with Native American Indians.



According to Field,

“This well printed and beautifully illustrated book is written in a style worthy of its subject. The story of De Soto’s life is told with a vigor and nervous energy, characteristic of his restless and ambitious career. The great cavalier, chivalrous gentleman, and splendid adventurer, was the only one of the type of courtly and Christian knights who sought for gold and renown on the continent of North America. His wonderful story of great resolve and terrible misfortune, is interwoven with the threads of that ever melancholy history of Indian massacre and defeat. Although scores of Spaniards fall in the wild rush of battle, or in the dense thickets and swamps, it is by thousands that the savages are trampled down before the charge of the Spanish horse, or perish by the murderous culverin and matchlock.
