Its author, Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, the son of an Inca princess and a Spanish conquistador, was born in Cuzco, Peru. In his chronicle Garcilaso offers a unique rendition of Hernando de Sotos expedition (1539-43) to the vast territory known then as La Florida. The studies collected in Beyond Books and Borders: Garcilaso de la Vega and La Florida del Inca were presented by leading scholars at an interdisciplinary symposium in November 2003, sponsored by the City College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), inaugurating the celebration of the fourth centennial of the 1605 publication of this important work. Two additional essays, an Introduction, a Chronology, a General Bibliography, and fifty-five images complete this book.
