Jim Hollingsworth, an author who worked at the Bunker Hill Mine as a planner, four years as a missionary in Mexico with New Tribes Mission, and 20 years as a building contractor in Idaho, has completed his new book, “Cortéz: A Biography”: a powerful memoir that exposes how the leader struggles before he overcomes his many battles and becomes victorious in achieving his plans for the nation.
Jim writes, “The life of Hernando Cortéz is the story of how one man with a handful of loyal soldiers overcame a progressive Indian culture of over one million.
There was nothing in the character of this young man that set him apart from others, yet once chosen to be the leader of this great Conquest he could move only one direction: Forward. Months of tragedy did not discourage him from the one goal, the Conquest of the Aztec Nation.
Whatever may be thought of the Conquest in a moral view, regarded as a military achievement it must fill us with astonishment. Cortéz and a handful of adventurers, indifferently armed and equipped, landed on the shores of a powerful empire inhabited by a fierce and warlike race and forced their way into the interior.
This they did without the knowledge of the language of the land, without chart or compass to guide them, without any idea of the difficulties they were to encounter, totally uncertain whether the next step might bring them on a hostile nation, or a desert, feeling their way along in the dark, as it were. This book, then, details their successes and failures until the goal was reached.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Hollingsworth’s new book exposes the life of a successful military genius, who, despite his ambitions, showed a respect for the interest of science, to be referred partly to the natural superiority of his mind as a conqueror.
Through this book, the author tells a story where readers could see the relevant events that happened during the reign of Cortéz as the conqueror of Mexico for them to be able to assess the leadership of those people in power in their nation.
Readers can purchase “Cortéz: A Biography” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
