Cabeza de Vaca and North America

Which conquistador would you have wanted to travel with: Cabeza de Vaca, Orellana, Pizarro, or Cortes?

Each conquistador made a different contribution to the world and each had a different leadership style -- with both positive and negative qualities.

I would have not liked to travel with any of these conquistadors. My reason is because how we study the conquista is from the conquistadors point of view so we can picture how they saw it.
