Malinche was the Amerindian translator for Hernan Cortes -- from her lips came the words that triggered the downfall of the great Aztec Emperor Moctezuma in the Spanish Conquest of 1521. In Mexico, Malinche's name is synonymous with "traitor", yet folklore and legend still celebrate her mystique. The author traverses Mexico and delves into the country's extraordinary past to excavate the mythologies of this exceptional woman's life. Malinche -- abandoned to strangers as a slave when just a girl -- was taken by Cortes to become interpreter, concubine, witness to his campaigns, mother to his son, yet married to another. She survived unimaginably precarious times relying on her intelligence, courage, and gift for language. Though Malinche's words changed history, her own story remained untold, until now.

Review: Malinche's Conquest

User Review  - Forrest - Goodreads

I really enjoyed this book. Well written as both a history and a travel book. In other words, the author traveled to the places in Mexico and then wrote about the history connecting Malinche to the places she was visiting. Read full review
