One of the greatest adventures in history. In 1527 the conquistador Cabeza de Vaca set sail for the Spanish territory of La Florida. His aim was to colonize land that stretched from present-day Florida to Texas, but the mission met with disaster. During an attempt to sail back to Cuba, Cabeza de Vaca and his crew crashed near Galveston Island. From there, he embarked on one of history's great adventures. His quest to return home took him ten years. He became the first European to live amongthe native people of Texas, the first to walk across the North American continent, the first to see the Mississippi and Pecos rivers and the Pacific Ocean from the North American continent. Following historical clues, Peter Lourie traces the conquistador's trail across Texas and into Mexico.
