In Naufragios, Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca recounts the adventures and misadventures of the expedition of Pánfilo de Narváez in search of the prodigious Fountain of eternal youth. The group sailed from San Lúcar de Barrameda composed of about 600 men.
After passing through Hispaniola and Cuba, many abandoned that adventure. Those who decided to continue marched to Florida, beginning an amazing journey of three thousand kilometers for eight years through the south of the current United States and northern Mexico.
They faced numerous attacks from the inhabitants of those territories, hurricanes, famine, endemic diseases and were victims of cannibalism and slavery. They also found the friendship of other locals and learned their customs and some of their languages.
At the end of this adventure only Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, Castillo, Dorantes and Estebanico were left alive. The latter, called “the Moor”, was the first man born in Africa to arrive in the United States.
In 1537 they managed to reach the colony of Nueva Galicia, in the Viceroyalty of New Spain, and there ended the American voyage of Shipwrecks.
