The Account is one of the earliest chronicles of Spanish penetration into North America. His journey (1528-1536) of hardship and misfortune is one of the most remarkable in the history of the New World and contains many first descriptions of the lands and their inhabitants. First published in Zamora, Spain, in 1542, The Account is of inestimable value for students of history and literature, ethnographers, anthropologists, and the general reader. It is also one of the most remarkable literary documents for the style, clarity, and sense of drama in the narrator's extraordinary effort to comprehend a totally new and marvelous world.
