    In 1528, a mission set out from Spain to colonize Florida. But the expedition went horribly wrong: Delayed by a hurricane, knocked off course by a colossal error of navigation, and ultimately doomed by a disastrous decision to separate the men from their ships, the mission quickly became a desperate journey of survival. Of the 300 men who had embarked on the journey, only four survived - three Spaniards and an African slave.

    What did you love best about A Land So Strange?

    A well told extraordinary story I had never heard before. Includes a lot of context about the age of the conquistadores that helps set the scene for the incredible journey. I enjoyed the factual accounting combined with speculation about what various stages of the trip must have been like. The gaps are filled in without making up a new dialogue.

    After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed "The Angel of Death" by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history.

    Story

    Charles Greber has done a fabulous job researching and presenting the characters in this most interesting tale. At first I thought his presentation of the main character's perspective was a little sappy, but then I realized he was able to put you inside his head, and it will spook you. Excellently narrated, the story unfolds at a deliberate but never boring pace that keeps you engaged.
