John Hemming, author of the best-seller The Conquest of the Incas, writes this fantastic book on the adventures to find El Dorado, the mythical gold-made city that obsessed conquistadors and adventurers and that made the life of those who looked for it a tragedy. Few legends have caused so much tragedy, yet the human greed and desire of glory of the Spanish conquistadors provoked their own disgrace. The Search for El Dorado is a very good read to learn about the lesser-known stories of failure of Spanish exploration.
