Detailed Product Description
New York, Dover, 1988. 465 pp. Used softcover. Very Good.

In 1541, Francisco de Orellana (c. 1511 - c. 1546), Spanish soldier and explorer, joined an expedition led by Gozalo Pizarro, governor of Quito in the then Spanish-held possession of Peru. The purpose of the expedition was to search for cinnamon in the rich territories on the eastern slopes of the Andes. After some time, in an efford to find food and inhabited lands, Orellana left the expedition in a brigantine with 50 soldiers. Reaching the junction of the Napo and Marafion (Amazon) rivers, Orellana decided not to return to the Pizarro expedition. Instead, he followed the great river system and went down the Amazon until he reached the Atlantic Ocean on August 26, 1542.
