cabeza de vaca lost

imagine it's the 1520's and you get lost in north america (somewhere near florida) looking for incan riches. it's a journey that lasts 8 years,escaping and being recaptured into slavery by the natives and at one point being worshiped by thousands of indians as a god, who follow him like the greatful dead all the way to mexico. cabeza de vaca get's lost-really lost. in a good way. sort of.
think "apocolypse now"/"holy mountain"
just found this video chronicling the journey->

you can also read the story in his words
