As a historical find, the Journals are a remarkable document. Recounting the first of a series of Spanish expeditions to the New World, the story they tell is one of great sacrifice and hardship in the name of science. Bad weather, fatigue, and all the dangers of travel in the wilds were endured, as well as disasters including the death of artist Jose Brunete and the loss of a manuscript to fire. In the scientific realm, Ruiz's studies may be considered ground-laying work in the discipline of ethnobotany. By relating the uses of plants by natives, such as the extraction of quinine for the treatment of malaria, to his description of the plant in its native environment, Ruiz employed methods central to modern science
