Summary
The story of Spanish nobleman ́Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, who joined an expedition to the New World in 1527. The expedition met with disaster after disaster, eventually leading Cabeza de Vaca to a seven-year stay among the Indians, first as a captive, then as a trader and healer. He came to believe that the Indians should be converted to Christianity with kindness and later attempted to put his ideas into practice
