This book is an interesting glimpse into the Tarascan culture of west Mexico. The Tarascans were the western neighbors of the powerful Aztec Triple Alliance in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries AD. The Relacion de Michoacan is the only document which discusses Tarascan language, customs, religion and warfare.

In addition, it tells us of the historical development of the Tarascan polity.Its not the easiest book to read - its in Spanish and there are many words that are from the 16th century which dont translate directly in to English. Add to that the fact that there are many terms in Purepecha (the Tarascan language) and its a challenging read. However, I would recommend reading the text in the original Spanish rather than settling for the English translation...Overall, a good book!
