Abstract:

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.

A wonderful resource

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-02-17) Excellent Permalink

This is a wonderful resource about an unusual explorer.  Cabeza de Vaca explored Texas and become friendly with Native Americans.  The book follows his journeys with photographs of the region and drawing of the explorers adventures.  Excellent.
