Our read for September is "A Land So Strange: the epic journey of Cabeza de Vaca"" by Andres Resendez. In 1528, a mission set out from Spain to colonize Florida. But the expedition went horribly wrong. Of the four hundred men who had embarked on the voyage, only four survived - three Spaniards and an African slave. The men lived with a variety of nomadic Indians and learned several indigenous languages. They saw lands, peoples, plants, and animals that no outsider had ever before seen. Based on the diary of Cabeza de Vaca.
