A Land So Strange is the survival story of the shipwrecked Spanish explorer Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, who spent several years travelling throughout modern US territory before returning to New Spain. The information that Cabeza de Vaca gathered during his journey was key for future Spanish expeditions into North America, about the peoples he encountered, the geography, animals and plants of Florida, the Louisiana coast and the American southwest. An enthralling non-fictional tale of survival and exploration of the New World.
