  • We will be having a expedition to colonize the land east of the Gulf Of Mexico. Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca will be one of the people leading this expedition and caring for the 500 men. (pg 68)
  • In a hurricane 200 of the men drowned or were deserted. Ships were then sent north and 300 men were ordered to march to New Spain (present day mexico). (pg 68)
  • Moths later, the ships were gone and the desperate landing party was eating horses to survive. Using horsehide and nails made from there melted armor.They built 5 barges and sailed around the gulf coast from Florida to Texas. (pg 68)
  • Two barges and 80 men washed up on or near Galveston island. They then made a fire and ate some food. (pg 72)
  • They then sent a man to look for any trails and when he didn't return they sent two more men to look for him. They shortly met him and saw 3 Indians with bows. Half an hour later they were reinforced with a 100 more bowmen. De Vaca greeted them where he gave them beads and bells and they gave them all a arrow in sign of friendship. (pg 72)
  • The Indians insisted that they become their medicine men (doctor) to be of some use to them. They would make a cut above the pain and suck on the wound, then cauterize it. De Vaca continued to live with the Indians for 6 years before he went back to Spain. (pg 68)
