Edición de Martin A. Favata y José B. Fernández. Originally published in 1542 as La relación, and popularly known as Los naufragios.
A critical edition of Cabeza de Vaca's account of his North American journey, the Relación or Naufragios, based on the Valladolid text of 1555. Variants from the 1542 Zamora edition are noted, as well as information from the summary sent by Cabeza de Vaca and his companions to the Audiencia of Santo Domingo in 1539. Ample footnotes on names, history, geography, flora, fauna, and Cabeza de Vaca's route. "La edición es una contribución a la bibliografía de Cabeza de Vaca. El texto de la Relación está cuidadosamente fijado, y las notas son de utilidad. Es una bienvenida adición al campo de los estudios sobre las letras coloniales." -Francisco J. Cevallos, Hispania. "A fine reproduction of the texts of both editions of Cabeza's tale." -Paul E. Hoffman, Tampa Bay History.
