Following Columbus's initial voyages of exploration, Spain established a pattern of conquest and settlement in the New World, fueled by a desire for wealth and colonies. In the name of Spain, many adventurers set out to explore and conquer the remainder of the unclaimed and uncharted Americas. Join our young hosts as they discover the world of the conquistadors who, in their exploration for a shorter path to the East, found personal wealth and an empire with boundless treasures for Spain. Hear the story of Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, who traveled across North America from Florida to California. Learn of Francisco Vazquez de Coronado's exploration of the American Southwest, Juan Ponce de Leon's discovery of Florida, Vasco Nunez de Balboa's trek through the jungles of South America to claim the Pacific Ocean for Spain and Hernando de Soto's discovery of the Mississippi River. Students will enjoy these accounts of the Spanish conquistadors' expeditions contained in this exciting video dramatization. Part of the multivolume Explorers of the World DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and is available online.
