Short Description

Over the centuries civilizations rise and fall. Before European explorers reached the shores of North and Central America, a great empire arose—the Aztecs. Leaving their original home in the north, the Aztecs came south, looking for the right place to build their dream city. They chose the most unlikely of places to settle—a snake-filled, barren island in the middle of a swamp. But with their energy, imagination, and determination, they not only built their city but conquered all those surrounding them to spread an empire more than 80,000 square miles (130,000 sq. km). Meet the Aztec gods, and learn what the Aztecs did to keep them happy. Discover what it’s like to walk in the footsteps of an Aztec warrior, a noblewoman, a priest, or a slave. Find out what they wore, what they ate—and who their enemies turned out to be.
