CABEZA DE VACA CASTAWAYS PDF

Three hundred European men, ten women, a sprinkling of African slaves, and forty-one horses traveled to the Florida peninsula with the intention of exploring and settling it permanently. Yet this colonization effort rapidly became a desperate journey of survival. The men and the horses were put ashore in the vicinity of Tampa Bay, Florida, while the ships with the crews and the women sailed along the coast. The idea was that the land contingent and the ships would meet a few days later.

This enthralling story of survival is the first major narrative of the exploration of North America by Europeans In order to survive, Cabeza de Vaca joined native peoples along the way, learning their languages and practices and serving them as a slave and later as a physician. When after eight years he finally reached the West, he was not recognized by his compatriots. In his writing Cabeza de Vaca displays great interest in the cultures of the native peoples he encountered on his odyssey.

As he forged intimate bonds with some of them, sharing their brutal living conditions and curing their sick, he found himself on a voyage of self-discovery that was to make his reunion with his fellow Spaniards less joyful than expected.

Cabeza de Vaca's gripping narrative is a trove of ethnographic information, with descriptions and interpretations of native cultures that make it a powerful precursor to modern anthropology. Frances M. Based as it is on Enrique Pupo-Walker's definitive critical edition, it promises to become the authoritative English translation.

His edition of Naufragios was published in Spain in Enrique Pupo-Walker.
