Críticas:

"(Andres Resendez's) indefatigable scholarship, knowledge of the context and craftsmanlike storytelling provide a model account: concise, solid, moving." TLS "Andres Resendez recreates this epic crossing in painstaking detail... Resendez tells this gripping story with zeal... It is impossible not to be swept along by his enthusiasm." FT "Resendez's brisk historical narrative cries out for novelisation." Times"

Reseña del editor:

In 1528, a mission set out from Spain to colonize Florida. But the expedition went horribly wrong: Delayed by a hurricane, knocked off course by a colossal error of navigation, and ultimately doomed by a disastrous decision to separate the men from their ships, the mission quickly became a desperate journey of survival. Of the three hundred men who had embarked on the journey, only four survived,three Spaniards and an African slave. This tiny band endured a horrific march through Florida, a harrowing raft passage across the Louisiana coast, and years of enslavement in the American Southwest. They journeyed for almost ten years in search of the Pacific Ocean that would guide them home, and they were forever changed by their experience. The men lived with a variety of nomadic Indians and learned several indigenous languages. They saw lands, peoples, plants, and animals that no outsider had ever seen before. In this enthralling tale of four castaways wandering in an unknown land, Andrés Reséndez brings to life the vast, dynamic world of North America just a few years before European settlers would transform it forever.
