Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca was born in 1490 in southwestern Spain. From an early age, he wanted to match the great deeds of his grandfather, Pedro de Vera Mendoza, who became famous for the conquest of Grand Canary Island for Spain. By his mid-thirties, Cabeza de Vaca was a seasoned military officer, ready to conquer more land for Spain. But as it turned out, Cabeza de Vaca spent more time in the New World living as a slave than as a conqueror. He traveled across Texas into the southwest enduring incredible adventures. It would be ten years later, in 1537, before he could set sail to Spain again.
