Learn the unbelievable true history of the great warrior tribes of Mexico. More than 13 centuries of incredible spellbinding history are detailed in this intriguing study of the rulers and warriors of Mexico. Dozens of these charismatic leaders of nations and armies are brought to life by the deep research and entertaining storytelling of Peter Tsouras. Tsouras introduces the reader to the colossal personalities of the period: Smoking Frog, the Mexican Machiavelli, the Poet Warlord, the Lion of Anahuac, and others... all of them warlords who shaped one of the most significant regions in world history, men who influenced the civilization of half a continent. The warlords of Mexico, for all their fascinating lives and momentous acts, have been largely ignored by writers and historians, but here that disappointing record is put right by a range of detailed biographies that entertain as they inform. Students of the area, historians working in American history, and long-term visitors and tourists to the region will gain a much clearer understanding of the background history of these territories and the men who formed and reformed them.

A fantastic introduction to Mesoamerican history.
The audio version helps immensely with pronouncing the names and cities throughout the book although I can imagine that seeing the printed names may help form some familiarity between the myriad of characters quicker. I believe that the print version contains several maps etc. which again would be very helpful.
It's the history of the rise and fall of indigenous Mesoamerican culture, the whole thing is utterly fascinating.
I have not. Initially I thought the performance would be an issue but it was anything but.
Audible really needs some new questions of History books.
If getting this audible version it would be best to spend some time throughout looking at maps of the region. All the moving’s of each civilisation can get a little disorientating.
