Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
