LIGHTHOUSE CATHOLIC MEDIA – EPIC JOURNEY OF CABEZA DE VACA
In 1527, Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca led an expedition to Florida. Craig Turner here tells this
amazing story — a tale of shipwrecks and slavery, of miracles, battles, apparitions, privations and
hardship, of spies and bribery, of human sacrifice, and above all, an astonishing journey through a
wilderness that took all but four lives out of three hundred. Those who sought to gain the most fared
the worst, and those who accepted their terrible fate performed miracles.
