Excerpt

lectura de los varios y diversos acaecimientos de cosas, que aun por su variedad es la naturaleza bella; y que aquellas amplísimas provincias del Rio de la Plata estaban casi puestas en olvido, y su memoria sin razon obscurecida, procuré poner en escrito algo de lo que supe, entendì y vì en ellas, en veinticuatro años que en aquel nuevo orbe peregrinè:--lo primero, por no parecer al malo é inutil siervo que abscondiò el talento recibido de su señor:--lo segundo, porque el mundo tenga entera noticia y verdadera relacion del Rio de la Plata, cuyas provincias son tan grandes, con gentes tan belicosas, animales y fieras tan bravas, aves tan diferentes, víboras y serpientes que han tenido con hombres conflicto y pelea, peces de humana forma, y cosas tan exquisitas, que dejan en éxtasis à los ánimos de los que con alguna atencion las consideran.

He escrito, pues, aunque en estilo poco pulido y menos limado, este libro
