This work is based on the study of the key chroniclers and their writings (primarily Menendez's brother-in-law, Gonzalo Solis de Meras, who was with him on the expedition, and Bartolome Barrientos, Professor at the University of Salamanca who several years later wrote a second-hand chronicle of the expedition based on eyewitness accounts.)

"... a valuable opportunity [for a scholar] to expand his or her knowledge and to witness a geography that was in the 16th century mythical, complex and menacing; the life, deeds, drama and aspirations of its inhabitants, old and new, and, in sum, the thrilling events Mercado's exquisite work offers us." - Prof. Carlos Alberto Gonzalez Sanchez University of Seville "... a landmark in scholarship dealing with colonial literature, culture, history, and studies of the early Spanish presence in the USA Southeast..." - Prof. Raquel Chang-Rodriguez The City University of New York"
