Prescott's life-work was concerned with Spain, and with the little known histories of Mexico and Peru. An accident in youth had left him nearly blind, but he employed readers and secretaries, and the amount of work-great in quality as in quantity-he got through was amazing. His History of the Reign of Perdinand and Isabella came out in 1838, his Conquest of Mexico in 1843, and the Conquest of Peru four years later ; while at his death in 1859 he was still engaged on his History of the Reign of Philip II, the first volume of which had appeared in 1855. Prescott was most painstaking in collecting facts and comparing statements, but the popularity of his books is largely due to their subject, which is romantic and adventurous, and their style, which is strong, absolutely clear, and often poetic.
Francis Parkman set himself to write the story of the struggle between France and England for the possession of half a continent-Canada ; and he planned his work so thoroughly that he actually spent several months living with the Indians, so that he could in some measure think their thoughts and see things as they saw them. In his Oregon Trail (1847) will be found an account of this period of his life. He suffered a great deal from bad health, but he lived to carry out his plan, and published his last book, A Half Century of Conflict, in 1892, the year before his death.
