Historia en Español de las Indias del Nuovo Mondo

The Historia en Español de las Indias del Nuovo Mondo or “History in Spanish of the Indies of the New World” is a travelogue by the Spanish explorer Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca and reflects his journeys in the Gulf of Mexico and modern Texas. Dated 1527, it is believed to be the earliest manuscript of his Relación y comentarios, which would be first published in 1542 and again in 1555. It stands as one of the most important early geographical and anthropological works concerning the region.
