Most books about Cabeza de Vaca concern his epic journey across Texas in the 16th century, but that is only half of his fascinating story.

Later he served as the royal governor of AsunciĆ³n, Paraguay. He led his party from the Brazilian coast inland to AsunciĆ³n, about 1200 miles, also on foot.The book examines his extraordinary adventures on two continents and his remarkable growth as a humanitarian.
