Aparece primero una descripción de los escenarios en donde se produce el fenómeno de l. a. Conquista y de l. a. colonización: flowers, fauna, clima y geografía como obstáculos y ventajas para los angeles empresa. Diferentes de lo que hoy conocemos, se hallan ya tocadas por el gran protagonista de esta y de todas las historias: el hombre, que las ha modificado y se ha adaptado a ellas.
El antiguo poblador de América, en su vida cotidiana, sus instituciones, creencias, diferencias, grandezas y defectos, aparece enseguida minuciosamente descrito. Los elementos que conformaban sus culturas, ricos y variados, habrán de sufrir serias perturbaciones con l. a. Conquista, un cambio social impuesto, una destrucción de lo existente que favorecen muchas veces los propios dominados. El clero, l. a. Corona y l. a. ambición se unen, en fin, en los españoles para provocar uno de los fenómenos históricos más controvertidos y polémicos y en el cual, según Friederici, los “civilizadores”, con su afán de lucro, su rapacidad y su crueldad bajo el disfraz de “cruzados”, no ocupan el lugar del héroe sino el del villano.
