Being a review of The Florida of the Inca, which I read with several companions for a book club meeting, in which we travelled to the Community Center of Almaden's fair library.

It took us several weeks to read through this long missive of the Inca, and in it we learned many wonderful Spanish idioms, and enjoyed greatly the footnotes of the esteemed translators, who helped us navigate this narrative of the New World.

It contains but one chapter of praise for the work of the Inca.
