4508. Coronado Knight of Pueblos and Plains, by Herbert E. Bolton (read 16 Nov 2008) This book won a Bancroft Prize in 1950. It is a carefully-researched book, detailing Coronado's great exploration jouney of 1540-1542 in Mexico and the now American Southwest. While the first part did not appeal to me in time I came to see what a really great job the author, a renowned historian, did on the subject. He also intersperses the narrative with enlivening remarks, wry or funny! Coronado, as conquistadores go, was an admirable man and I only wish he had had the good fortune which some less admirable explorers had--Pizarro, for instance. This book will grow on you as you read it. ( )
