The Adventurers provides a new, fresh perspective on an important part of history. Promises of rumored riches lead a 16th century European adventurer and his followers to the new world only to find an overwhelming force of warriors confronting them. They belong to a ruthless and barbaric empire that exists solely through dictatorial methods over less powerful nations. Traveling inland, they hear pleas for relief from unjust demands of taxation and tribute, and the adventurers promise help. When they reach the empire capital, they see thousands of warriors and wonder how their small army can overthrow them. .

Very interesting! What a fresh, new perspective on an important part of history. Throughout the book, the author wove intriguing historical details into the story so well I wondered how much was fictional.

  Fascinating Story , 02/20/2009
Reviewer: Angus Odell
In The Adventurers, Herb Romero used the historical events of Hernan Cortes's conquests in the New World to create a fascinating story. He points out the extraordinary accomplishments of Cortes: Defeating an evil empire; stopping the practice of human sacrifice; introducing Christianity to the western hemisphere; and the superb leadership of Cortes in the formation of alliances among the oppressed native people.
