really liked it
bookshelves: history, adventure
Recommended for: history buffs.
Read in January, 2006

From the few primary sources that remain, Paul Schneider weaves a compelling story about "early European colonialism gone epically wrong," in the words of the PW review. If you liked AGUIRRE, this story about a Spanish expedition that started in Florida with 400 men and ended in Mexico with four is going to be irresistible.
