Of the 300 Spanish explorers who set out to discover and conquer the wilderness of North America, only four returned--after covering about 6,000 miles in the course of eight harrowing years. Cabeza de Vaca's account of the 1528-1536 expedition crackles with excitement and suspense, relating the survivors' journey across treacherous territory, rhapsodizing over the pristine beauty of the American wilderness, and offering firsthand information on American Indian life before European influence. Professor Cyclone Covey's outstanding translation represents the definitive edition of Cabeza de Vaca's odyssey, incorporating all of the latest related historic research.
