It was a good read. Sometimes, I tell myself it doesn’t matter who wrote which book as long as I know it is divinely inspired. I find the Bible very different from other religious holy books which make it more interesting, an eye opener and it is the only holy scripture to be verified scientifically though atheists don’t want to acknowledge that..
The whole company felt disturbed at this, that a thing so much praised, and about which the father had said so many things, should be found so very different; and they began to think that all the rest would be of the same sort.When I noticed this, I tried to encourage them as well as I could, telling them that Your Lordship had always thought that this part of the trip would be a waste of effort, and that we ought to devote our attention to those Seven Cities and the other provinces about which we had information that these should be the end of our enterprise. With this resolution and purpose, we all marched cheerfully along a very bad way, where it was impossible to pass without making a new road or repairing the one that was there, which troubled the soldiers not a little, considering that everything which the friar had said was found to be quite the reverse; because, among other things which the father had said and declared, he said that the way would be plain and good, and that there would be only one small hill of about half a league.

So he would make combat challenges to give the illusion he was a lethal street fighter, then weasel out of them to give the illusion he was a lethal street fighter who was just very bad at scheduling. I’ve also read that none of this was true, because due to the nature of intentionally mysterious charlatans, it’s hard to get a straight account of anything he’s ever been involved in. But we do know that he participated in at least one actual fight, and it did not go well..
