In March, 1965 thirteen men, led by Peruvian officials, recreated Francisco Pizarro’s famous voyage from Panama to the Isla del Gallo. Here they honored the conquistadores of Peru by placing a bronze plaque on the island. This slender book contains a romanticized account of the journey, laudatory remarks made by attending representatives from Peru, Spain, and Colombia, a popularized story of Pizarro’s legendary recruitment of followers, and thirty-five pages of newspaper excerpts praising the Spanish adventurers. It also includes a brief essay by Peruvian historian, Aurelio Miró Quesada S., who compares the conflicting historical versions of the manner in which Pizarro chose his companions.
