Description : The extraordinary tale of a shipwrecked Spaniard who walked across America in the sixteenth century In 1527, a mission set out from Spain to colonize Florida. But the expedition went horribly wrong: delayed by a hurricane and knocked off course by a colossal error of navigation, the mission quickly became a desperate journey of survival. Of the three hundred men who had embarked, only four survived--three Spaniards and an African slave. This tiny band endured a horrific march through Florida, a harrowing raft passage across the Louisiana coast, and years of enslavement in the American Southwest. They journeyed for almost ten years in search of the Pacific Ocean that would guide them home, seeing lands, peoples, plants, and animals that no outsider had before. In this enthralling tale of four castaways wandering in an unknown land, Andrés Reséndez brings to life the vast, dynamic world of North America just a few years before European settlers would transform it forever.

Description : How often the busyness of life can creep up and overwhelm us. Rather than depending on our own strength, as Christians it is our privilege to enter into a daily time of reverent meditation and silence, waiting only upon God for His answers to our problems, His direction in our lives, and most importantly, His awesome presence refreshing our spirits and teaching us more about Himself. Andrew Murray shares 31 heartfelt meditations, one for each day of the month, to help readers renew their vision and quicken their desire to turn to the Lord for His quiet, peaceful strength. Murray’s own prayer was that the Lord would use these meditations “to draw all to Himself, to learn in practice and experience the blessed art of waiting only upon God.”
