Cabeza de Vaca, the head of a cow; what a strange name for a man!
Many, many years ago, before Washington was born, and before Columbus had discovered America, the kings of France and Spain were at war with the Moors, a heathen people who lived in Africa. With great armies they had crossed the narrow strait of Gibraltar and taken possession of the best parts of Spain.
A long and cruel war followed. But the Spaniards were not strong enough to drive them back. Then the French came to the help of the Spaniards. The two armies moved against the enemy. High mountains lay between them and the enemy's country. When they came to the mountains, they found all the passes strongly guarded by Moorish soldiers. In these narrow and dark passes one man could withstand a thousand. It would not do to risk a battle here.
