Try the beginning portion of:
"The Harper American Literature, V.1" from Harper&Row,Publishers, New
York, 1987. ed. McQuade, Atwan, Banta et al.
(I had to purchase for a lit class), has several, very brief and
clear accounts by Columbus, Cabeza de Vaca, Pedro de Casten~eda
(chronicler for Coronado), and a few others. Very revealing of the
impressions and motives of the first conquistadores and explorers.
