This book is written in ancient spanish language and it is not fiction but history. His autor was the first european traveling all around southern US. When his ship sunk in Florida, he tried to reach Mexico just walking with others survivers. He was the first white man discovering Mississipi river. The trip from Florida to Mexico took him 7 years. He was slave of the indians, he won his freedom, he was also the first european to see and eat "maiz" (corn). If you are interested in the spanish conquer of America this book fits such interest.

Este libro está escrito en español antiguo y no trata de ficción sino de hechos históricos. Cabeza de Vaca naufragó en las costas de Florida y, tras esperar sin éxito que algún otro barco los recogiera, empezó su viaje por el Sur de los Estados Unidos con otros supervivientes tratando de llegar a Méjico. Este viaje le llevó 7 años. Fué el primer descubridor del río Misisipi y el primer hombre blanco que vió y comió "millo" (maiz). Estuvo preso de los indios hasta que consiguió liberarse y llegar a Méjico. Fué el primer explorador europeo del Sur de los EEUU. Por su español antiguo y difícil de leer, que no de entender, este libro es sólo recomendable para gente interesada en la historia de la conquista de América por los españoles.
