Within a year there were only four survivors: the expedition?s treasurer, Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca; a Spanish nobleman named Alonso del Castillo Maldonado; a young explorer named Andrés Dorantes de Carranza; and Dorantes?s Moroccan slave, Mustafa al-Zamori, whom the three Spaniards called Estebanico.
