    • Full of historical and cultural information, while keeping mostly clean in light of its content, 'By Right of Conquest' gives a balanced picture of Cortez and the Aztecs. Though it deals with horrifically violent events, they are written non-descriptively. The characters are easy to relate to and the story is interesting. Roger doesn't always do what is right, but his aim is always to do righteously and he looks out for others more than for himself. I like this book better each time I read it.




    • Cortez in about 1520 "invaded" Mexico with up to 400 soldiers and sailers - his goal was to march to Mexico City and both bring back gold and convert the heathens to be catholics. Initially the Aztecs (the ruling minority tribe of many in an alliance, but not all tribes) received them, but then threatened and fought them. They returned towards the coast. After replenishing supplies and power, the next year they waged a long fight ultimately burning/tearing down much of the then existing dwelling [...]


    • Roger Harkshaw and his father Reuben decide to sail to Mexico and attempt to establish trade with some of the natives. Because the pope has allocated this portion of land to the Spaniards, this is (naturally) a very dangerous enterprise. Their ship is wrecked before it establishes contact with any of the Mexican tribes, and Roger is the only man who escapes the wreck with his life.Once on land, the natives treat him as a god for a while. They soon decide that he would be an excellent sacrifice t [...]


    • Very detailed account of Cortez' expedition, at times the level of detail was boring to me, but I'm sure it would be interesting to some. It seems that Henty, in choosing an English main character, was able to do a decent job of pointing out the complex motivations of the Spaniards, the Aztecs, and other native tribes who had been previously conquered by the Aztecs. For instance, he showed that the Spaniards were indeed greedy, but were also motivated by their horror at the immense numbers of hu [...]


    • I really enjoyed "By Right of Conquest." Henty has a great way of using setting to its fullest potential. However, he tends to go on for 2 or 3 pages at a time describing the setting. He is a lover of history, and you can tell because this book was VERY historically accurate. I was not expecting it to be so well aligned with history. "By Right of Conquest" was full of action and had a great plot. It was a great insight into what actually happened during Spain's conquering of Mexico. I would sugg [...]


    • An entertaining read that gives insight into the Spanish conquest of the Aztecs, assuming the narrative is based on fact; but, because I am not all that familiar with Cortez and Montezuma, may or may not be true. (Everything I learned----and forgot----about Cortez and the Aztecs was in middle school----a very long time ago!) The story has a lively pace, many cliff-hangers, a sprinkling of romance, elements of treachery and deceit, and lasting friendships. I enjoyed it.


    • Another of Henty's historical novels in which the juvenile hero grows to maturity, faces adversity, encounters real-life heroes (in this case both Hernan Cortez & Montezuma), and in the end wins renown - and the girl.


    • From what I remember, this is a long book and highly detailed, almost with the story as an afterthought. But I enjoy non-fiction history, so I didn't bug me that much.
