Octavo, hardcover (slick, full-color illus. boards), 63 pp. Illustrated in full color. Fine (As New). From lower cover: Hernando de Soto was a brave Spanish soldier and a daring horseman. He became rich when he helped lead the Spanish conquest of the Inca Indians in South America in 1536. He hoped to gain even more riches by exploring in the New World. For three years, de Soto led a party of Spanish soldiers through the unexplored region called La Florida -- today the southern United States -- on a quest for gold and glory. He and his men wandered through a large area, discovering the Mississippi River along the way. Although Hernando de Soto did not succeed in his quest for gold, his name lives on. He is remembered as one of the most famous early explorers of America.
