Naufragios by Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca - Summary

When the ships of Panfilo de Narváez arrive at the Mexican gulf they are confused and slightly lost as is their geography. What they expected to find seems to not exist at all and the harsh weather conditions saw only four of the six hundred brave explorers survive. This is the story of how these explorers survived and how they went on to live 10 more years of adventures in the New World before returning to Lisboa where their friends and family could not believe their eyes as they made their way down the harbour. Exhilarating and incredible this story tops any adventure book of its time.

Resulta fascinante comprobar el estado en el que se encontraba América a los treinta años de ser descubierta. En ese instante histórico es cuando llegan los navíos de Pánfilo de Narváez al golfo de Méjico. Tenían nociones geográficas de la zona pero muy confusas y equivocadas, lo que unido a las desfavorables condiciones climatológicas, hizo que solamente cuatro entre los seiscientos expedicionarios lograron sobrevivir a tan desafortunada expedición. Para poder sobrevivir a situaciones tan terribles era necesario tener una voluntad y una fe de hierro. Durante sus nueve años de convivencia con los indios, el autor aprendió a amarlos. Tras ser encontrado casualmente por otros españoles, que formaban parte de otra expedición, es conducido frente a Hernán Cortés. Finalmente, los cuatro supervivientes, tras diez años de aventuras increíbles por el Nuevo Mundo, desembarcaron en Lisboa. Habría que imaginar la expresión de los rostros de sus familiares y amigos al verles de nuevo. La realidad histórica que vivieron, supera a las más emocionantes fantasías de las novelas de aventuras.
