The most thorough description in Spanish letters of La Florida, which extended from the Florida peninsula to Mexico during the period of Spanish exploration, is found in the Relación of Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca. Yet, for centuries, it has been the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega who has enjoyed the undisputed distinction in Spanish literature, as well as in history, of being the “chronicler of Florida.”
