These days I am checking out Clements R. Markham (1830-1916). His translations, from Spanish into English, of the original chronicles of the conquest of Peru were the main source for Bingham's search for the last Inca capital.
I am curious if the conquistadors of Peru (e.g. Francisco Pizarro) were really that gold thirsty. Not too one-dimensional? Did those men have no other dreams?
What a bless is The Internet these days. I was able to find all the books. Now I must find the time to read them :)
