An Early Florida Adventure Story: The Fray Andrés de San Miguel Account / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- University Press of Florida
Among documents of Florida's Spanish colonial period, few eyewitness accounts exist. One of these, the 1595 narrative by Fray Andrés de San Miguel, describes the two-year odyssey of a teenager from Spain across the Atlantic to Mexico, Havana, and Florida and finally back to Spain. The future friar's account of his experiences as a young sailor brings to life the fleets of the Golden Age of Spain. It also provides vivid information about the Indians of the Florida and Georgia coast.
