Summary
Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca arrived in Florida in 1528 to begin the exploration and conquest of what is now the southern United States. Wood tracks their progress northward toward Tallahassee, where, fleeing hostile Indians, the conquistadors built boats in the hope of reaching Mexico. Shipwrecked off the coast of Texas, most were never seen again. For 5 years, Cabeza de Vaca lived among the Karankwa and then the Coahuiltean Indians until he rejoined 3 fellow conquistadors. Together they embarked on an epic walk across America to the Pacific coast, reappearing 8 years after they were lost. Using Cabeza de Vaca's own book Wood rides through the north Mexican desert, sleeping at prehistoric campsites. Traveling to the Pacific along ancient Indian trails, he visits the spectacular Native-American city of Casas Grandes, passing through some of the most beautiful landscapes in America.
