Cultural Writing. A new and improved translation of the Spanish explorer's chronicle of his journey across a large portion of what is now the United States. De Vaca's journey (1528 - 1536) of hardship and misfortune is one of the most remarkable in the history of the New World and contains many first descriptions of the land and their inhabitants. THE ACCOUNT is of estimable value for students of history an literature, ethnographers, anthropologists, and the general reader. It is the second literary text to be issued by a national project to reconstruct the literary history of Hispanics of the United States.

From Library Journal:

Cabeza de Vaca and a few surviving companions were the first Europeans to walk across the mainland of North America. His account of this epic trek between Florida and Mexico (1527-36) was later published in Spain (1542). This new annotated translation by two Florida academics provides us with one of the earliest records of a pristine America and its native peoples. In addition, this it is a readable and gripping chronicle of adversity in which would-be conquistadors ultimately acculturate themselves to Indian life. Another modern translation is Cyclone Covey's Cabeza de Vaca's Adventures in the Unknown Interior of America (Univ. of New Mexico Pr., 1984. reprint). Recommended for both specialists and general readers.
