Legends related to Spanish exploration of Nebraska. As stated in the pamphlet: "Some truth and much fiction are indiscriminately mixed in these narratives. The various accounts of the edpeitions differ to such an extent in dates, incidents, and geographical placements that they are classified as legends.
