Adventures in the Unknown Interior of America Author:Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca Translated by Cyclone Covey. — "Cabeza de Vaca's own unvarnished account of his adventures on the first expedition to the interior of Florida, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and northern Mexico is unparalleled in the history of explorations. Four men out of a force of three hundred eventually found their way back to civilization after eight harrowing... more » years. Enslaved by Indians, worshipped as gods - almost everything that can happen to men happened to them.
De Vaca wrote with humanity and wit - and he had an incredibly exciting tale to tell. This excellent translation by Professor Covey is the first to take advantage of a half century of scientific findings surrounding this adventure and supersedes all previous scholarship on the subject."« less
