Book Report: The Aztecs by Frances F. Berdan (1989)
This is a book in a series on the Natives of the Americas. As such, it has a lot of images and glosses over the worst of the Aztec empire, providing an inspirational and mostly laudatory account of the tribe. I suppose it's not a bad primer if you're looking to write a sixth grade report, and it could probably serves as a source for that. However, given that I've already read some more complete histories, it lacks in depth or in any gap-filling knowledge. However, in my quest for endless anecdotes about how the Aztecs did it, I can talk about having read one more book about them.
