[QUOTE]Originally posted by NR: [QB] Here is another interesting lead which I must follow up on. It is very similar to the Cabeza de Vaca story. It takes place around 1569. David Ingram, an Englishman, becomes shipwrecked in Mexico and ends up in being rescued in Nova Scotia some 11 months later. Ingram's account was written down 13 years later in 1582 by Sir Francis Walsingham, (Ingram himself was illiterate), and subsequently published in 1589 by Richard Hakluyt. It is generally believe to be fictional because Ingram claims to have seen Elephants during his journey, but also because the distance traveled was to great to have been accomplished in less than a year. (Cabeza de Vaca's journey, being a shorter distance, took place over the course of several years). http://www.h2g2.com/approved_entry/A1143488 Regardless, since this Journey takes place before Thevet's 1575 map, and Ingram may have passed near the Southwest, I plan on looking into this further.
