They're the stuff of which legends are made, and hundreds of brilliant color pictures and black-and-white drawings capture their history, their insignias, their legacy. Founders and breakers of empires, these charismatic warlords of native America -- whose spellbinding stories played out over a span of thirteen centuries -- spread their culture and religion through vast areas of Central America. Some of the peoples, such as the Mayans and Aztecs, will be familiar; others, including the Teotihuacanos, who bore the Feathered Serpent of War to Mayan lands, may be less well-known. Among the men whose exploits come vividly to life here are Tozozomoc, a shrewd military strategist who also understood the arts of flattery, bribery, and assassination; Nezahualcoyotl, the "poet warlord", who as a young prince saw his father slaughtered; and Motecuhzoma I, who united his people and built an empire "The lavish illustrations almost equal the text in value and the whole volume is available reference on a subject on which material is not easy to find". -- Booklist.
