The Florida of the Inca is a work of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. It recounts the adventures of the Spanish expeditionaries in their travels through the Florida peninsula in North America. They were headed first by Captain Hernando de Soto, and then by Luis de Moscoso, between 1539 and 1543. The book is complemented by a description of the geographical environment and customs of the indigenous people.
La Florida del Inca is printed in 1605, and its existence is known thanks to the dedication that the author made to Philip II, in his translation of the Dialogues of Love, dated 1586.
For the writing of this work, Inca Garcilaso used various printed sources:

  • the chronicles of Francisco López de Gómara,
  • the Natural and Moral History of the Indies, by José de Acosta, in the historiographical field of the Indies;
  • Shipwrecks of Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca,
  • the poem Elegies of illustrious men by Juan de Castellanos
  • and La Araucana, by Alonso de Ercilla.

The Florida of the Inca is a classic story with novelesque flashes, where discoveries, shipwrecks, losses and reunions in natural landscapes are recounted. It is an adventure story, in the style of chivalry novels, there is no lack of fights, nor gallantry between brave soldiers and beautiful ladies.
His prose is the result of long hours of reading and the need to show a world that expires and another that settles. Florida… prepares him to face his greatest feat: the Royal Commentaries (also published in Linkgua editions).
Florida… is the first chronicle of the Indies written by a mestizo author born in the New World. The Inca Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616), was a native of Cuzco, son of the Spanish captain Sebastián Garcilaso de la Vega and the Inca princess Isabel Chimpu Ocllo.
Inca Garcilaso knew how to combine his two cultural heritages: the American Indian and the European. His work is the historical testimony of the Viceroyalty of Peru and he is considered the father of letters in the Americas.
