Alvar Nuñez joined the expedition of Pámfilo de Narvaez to Florida in 1526 as treasurer. With two other Spaniards and an Arab Moor, he was the only survivor who remained on the mainland. For eight years they roamed along the coasts of Louisiana and Texas under the greatest of hardships, their position among the Indians being wellnigh intolerable. In utter despair, Cabeza de Vaca at last tried his scanty knowledge of medicine and, his cures proving successful, he became a renowned medicine man among the natives, his companions following the example. The treatment to which they resorted partook of the nature of a faith-cure. He declares the sign of the cross to be a seldom-failing remedy. The belief of the outcasts in miracles was sincere, while acknowledging that they also employed indigenous Indian remedies with simple Christian religious ceremonials. After nine years they reached the Pacific coast in Sonora, Mexico, thus being the first Europeans to travel across the North American continent

Cabeza de Vaca y sus hombres entraron en contacto con unos indios de la Florida que les hicieron creer que había oro muy cerca. Caminaron durante dos semanas en dirección al noroeste hasta encontrar el primer poblado indígena. Sus impresiones serían después reveladas en sus obras. Tras una tentativa de volver, Alvar Núñez y su grupo continuaron rumbo a los Apalaches, sufrieron el cansancio y los ataques indígenas y encontraron mucho oro. El grupo se dirigió entonces de regreso a la costa y en el trayecto fueron atacados varias veces. Alvar Núñez nunca más vio a su capitán Pánfilo de Narváez, quien se negó a lanzarle una cuerda para rescatar su barco. La barca de Narváez fue arrojada mar adentro por un viento muy fuerte y desapareció. Cabeza de Vaca consiguió llegar a una isla donde encontraron indios muy amistosos. Allí pudo aprender mucho sobre las costumbres indígenas y sus curas mediante poderes mágicos
