Item description for Naufragios (Intemporales) (Spanish Edition) by Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca & Silvia L. Cuesy...

Con la idea de igualar los exitos de Hernan Cortes, en 1527 se embarco la expedicion que mas adelante se conoceria como la "expedicion del fracaso", y que se proponia conquistar Florida. Formaba parte de ella Alvar Nuez Cabeza de Vaca, uno de los cuatro sobrevivientes de la aventura. Naufragios es un relato autobiografico que narra los sucesos vividos por este hombre, con abundancia de datos y descripciones que dejaron un legado para las posteriores expediciones. Esta obra describe la inversion de papeles que acontecio: de conquistadores a conquistados, y de dominantes a dominados. El autor da muestra de una nueva realidad, diferente a las antiguas descripciones de las ciudades de oro que hacia Cristobal Colon, con mas objetividad que la mayoria de los otros cronistas que describieron el ahora llamado "encuentro de dos mundos". After Hernan Cortes' successful exploits, an expedition later known as "The Failed Expedition" shipped out in 1527 to conquer Florida. Naufragios is narrated by Alvar Nuez Cabeza de Vaca, one of the four survivors of this adventure, full of information and descriptions that were used for other expeditions. This book shows the role reversals they experienced: from conquerors to conquered, from dominators to dominated. The author shows a new reality and objectivity of the "Encounter of the two worlds," different from Columbus' descriptions of the golden cities.
