This book traces the author's adventure as he sets out for Texas to find and follow the trail of Cabeza de Vaca, who survived hurricanes, shipwrecks, starvation, and trekking thousands of miles in the Mexican desert.
Sixteen-century Spanish conquerors, known as conquistadors, came to the New World with a thirst for gold and land. When the conquistadors returned to Spain, they told fantastic stories about their adventures. One story stands out from the rest, about a conquistador whose expedition was a complete failure. Cabeza de Vaca collected no gold and conquered no one, but he accomplished a feat no other conquistador had. After spending years among the native peoples of the New World, he learned to respect the very people he had come to conquer.
