Cabeza de Vaca-La Relacion


After returning to Spain, Cabeza de Vaca wrote an account of his years in the Americas. First published in 1542, this extraordinary adventure story has thrilled readers for centuries. Cabeza de Vacas account is also of great anthropological and historical importance. In Texas alone he identified 23 Indian groups, describing in detail their clothes, languages, eating habits, rituals, homes, and migrations.
