  • Brutal Journey

    I read this over Christmas and thought it would be of interest to the folks here.

    This history may be familiar to most - though it wasn't to me - but this telling is worth a second look for the quality of it's authorship and the emphasise he puts on on archeology to underpin this extraordinary saga.

    Survivors of the Narveaz' failed conquest offer witness to indian life in Florida and Gulf Coast states in the early 1500s in a first contact history like no other I've read.

              That's crazy. 4 out of 400 returning. Guess they should have stayed in Spain. Seems like a good read!
