What were the Americas like before they were colonized by Spain, Portugal, France and England? Cabeza de Vaca speaks from the past in this personal account of his eight-year trek across six thousand miles of North American and Mexican territory. Only a handful of his three-hundred-man expedition survived the journey. He describes the respect they developed for the Indians, some slaves, some healers and mystics, as well as his observations of the Spanish Conquistadors they encounter along the way. George Guidall's clear, concise voice glides easily over Spanish and Indian names, and his interpretation brings historic imagery to life. M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 95]
