    • Fiction


      by Ignacio del Valle

      Coronado. The mythical city of Cibola and the search for a new El Dorado led Francisco Vázquez de Coronado to the south of what today are the United States of America. For the first time European eyes saw those lands: vast deserts, red canyons, large plains full of bison, dangerous indigenous tribes... They were years of conquest and evangelization, years plagued by clashes and diseases, but also of glories and objectives achieved. It is the open, non-conformist and astounded Franciscan, Friar Tomás de Urquiza, who tells us this story. So, years after the expedition, in 1564, Friar Tomás reminisces on the expedition in which, twenty years earlier, he accompanied Coronado. As if he were an ancient chronicler of the Indies, Ignacio del Valle offers us a vibrant and meticulous narrative, in which the facts reach the reader like the close-ups of a film. And together with Friar Tomás, thanks to his ready-witted vision, full of pros and cons, we immerse ourselves in the New World of the mid-sixteenth century.
