Joseph Hilaire Pierre Ren Belloc (1870-1953) was one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. His best travel writing has secured a permanent following. The Path to Rome (1902), an account of a walking pilgrimage he made from central France across the Alps and down to Rome, has remained continuously in print. More than a mere travelogue, The Path to Rome contains descriptions of the people and places he encountered, his drawings in pencil and in ink of the route, humour, poesy, and the reflections of a large mind turned to the events of his time as he marches along his solitary way. At every turn, Belloc shows himself to be profoundly in love with Europe and with the Faith that he claims has produced it. Two of his best known non-fiction works are The Servile State (1912) and Europe and Faith (1920). Among his other works are: Avril: Being Essays on the Poetry of the French Renaissance (1904), The Historic Thames (1907), On Nothing and Kindred Subjects (1908), Hills and the Sea (1913), A General Sketch of the European War (1915), and The Free Press (1917).

Of the 300 Spanish explorers who set out to discover and conquer the wilderness of North America, only four returned -- after covering about 6,000 miles in the course of eight harrowing years. Cabeza de Vaca's account of the 1528-1536 expedition crackles with excitement and suspense, relating the survivors' journey across treacherous territory, rhapsodizing over the pristine beauty of the American wilderness, and offering firsthand information on American Indian life before European influence. Professor Cyclone Covey's outstanding translation represents the definitive edition of Cabeza de Vaca's odyssey, incorporating all of the latest related historic research. --Publisher.
