Castaways : the narrative of Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca by Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca( )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Castaways (or Naufragios) is the first major narrative of the exploration of North America by Europeans (1528-1536). It is also an enthralling story of adventure and survival against unimaginable odds. Its author, Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, a fortune-seeking sixteenth-century Spanish nobleman, was the treasurer of an expedition to claim for the Spanish Crown a vast area that includes today's Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. A shipwreck forced him and a handful of men to make the long journey to the West coast, where they would meet up with Hernan Cortes, on foot. They endured unspeakable hardships, some of them surviving only by eating the dead. Others, including Cabeza de Vaca joined native peoples he met along the way, learning their languages and practices, and serving them as a slave and later as a physician. When after eight years he finally reached the West, he was not recognized by his compatriots. Cabeza de Vaca displays great interest in the cultures - so alien to his own - of the native peoples he encountered on his odyssey, observing their customs and belief systems with a degree of sophistication and sensitivity unusual in the conquistador. As he forged intimate bonds with some of them, sharing their brutal living conditions and curing their sick, he found himself on a voyage of self-discovery that was to make his reunion with his fellow Spaniards less joyful than expected. Cabeza de Vaca's narrative is a marvelously gripping story, but it is also much more. It is a first-hand account of sixteenth-century Spanish colonization, of the encounter between the conquistador and the Native American, of the aspirations and fears of exploration. It is a trove of ethnographic information, its descriptions and interpretations of native peoples' cultures making it a powerful precursor to modern anthropology. And it is a masterpiece of exploration writing, its author keenly aware of the fictive thrust that often energizes the writing of history

28 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cambridge History of Latin American Literature is by far the most comprehensive work of its kind ever written. Its three volumes cover the whole sweep of Latin American literature (including Brazilian) from pre-Columbian times to the present, and contain chapters on Latin American writing in the USA. Over forty specialists in North America, Latin America and Britain have contributed to what is not only the most reliable, up-to-date, and convenient reference work on its subject, but also a set of books containing innovative approaches and fresh research that will expand and animate the field for years to come. The History is unique in its thorough coverage of previously neglected areas, in its detailed discussion of countless writers in various genres, and in its inclusion of extensive annotated bibliographies. Volume 1 begins with pre-Columbian traditions and their first contact with European culture, continuing through to the end of the nineteenth century. New World historiography, epic poetry, theatre, the novel, and the essay form are among the areas covered in this comprehensive and authoritative treatment

Los naufragios by Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in Spanish and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Si bien las primeras expediciones a la Florida desde su descubrimiento en 1512 tuvieron en común su fracaso final, ha pasado a la posteridad como máximo ejemplo de insensatez e improvisación. Felizmente, tal cátastrofe nos dejó el documento excepcional en que Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vacarelatá sus desventuras, desde la dispersión de la naves y el cautiverio de sus tripulantes, hasta su posterior liberación y la penosa peregrinación durante años por las tierras del actual sur de Estados Unidos. Si Naufragios posee un inestimable valor etnográfico por sus descripciones de pueblos y costumbres, la crónica alcanza tonos épicos en su narración de hazañas, calamidades y peligros, siendo la experiencia de su autor, como concluye Trinidad Barrera, un verdadero "descenso a los infiernos que sólo una naturaleza superior podía resistir"
