This was definitely a funny way to look at what might of happened between Ponce de Leon and the American Indians in Florida. This did not really make Ponce a likable character at all. I did grow to like Juarez though and many of the Indians. If the explorers that came to America were all that self centered I do not think we could have found the new world. This was an interesting story. I received a copy of this book from iReadbooktours for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will
I give this book a four out of five stars.
Two Florida State geology students found the pages written by Ponce de Leon’s chronicler in a dry limestone cave in the northwest panhandle. The original Spanish papers, five hundred years old, were found in relatively good shape, protected from time and moisture in a heavy triple-walled leather case. They chronicle Ponce de Leon’s second expedition to Florida in search of the fountain of youth.BUY THE BOOK:
