Product Details


Rivers of Gold is history in the grand manner. Hugh Thomas has written a vivid, dramatic and compelling narrative of the Spanish Empire to world domination.”
—ARTHUR SCHLESINGER JR., winner of the Pulitzer Prize

“No one writes better than Hugh Thomas on the heartbreaking clash of civilizations that produced the Spanish Empire. This book is an event in itself, full to the brim with knowledge, colour and deep understanding.”
—ANN WROE, author of The Perfect Prince and Pontius Pilate

“Hugh Thomas has now retold this remarkable story—or at least the first thirty years of it—in a splendid volume, bold and strong in its outlines, rich in fascinating details, punctuated by well-chosen quotations from contemporaries and eyewitnesses, and accompanied by many maps and excellent illustrations. It is an ambitious project, magnificently carried out.”
