    In March 1500, a fleet of 13 ships set sail from Lisbon, beginning a process of conquest, colonization and settlement that would create the modern nation of Brazil. This selection of original letters, reports and instructions, many published for the first time in English, and some for the first time in any language, charts the interactions of indigenous peoples, Portuguese colonists, Jesuit priests and African slaves to reveal the early political, economic, social and religious life of the colony.
