Written by Harry Kelsey

This book traces Cabrillo’s rise from a ragged childhood in the streets of Seville to a position of power and wealth as one of the richest landholders and most intrepid adventurers in the New World. There have been many biographical essays, but this is the first full-scale biography of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo based on original research. Working from the earliest published accounts, through thousands of pages of unpublished documents in Guatemala, Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Austria, the Netherlands, England, through research libraries in the United States, and especially the rich collections of the Huntington Library, Kelsey presents us with a vivid account of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s life and times.
