This chapter focuses on the sixteenth-century Portuguese pilot Nuno da Silva, who traveled the inverse route of the adolescent Jose de Santa Rita Durao. Silva's voyages between Portugal and Brazil continued as he worked his way from the position of sailor to pilot and finally captain; in another deposition, to the viceroy of New Spain, Silva is identified both as a “native of Lisbon, citizen of Oporto, and resident of Gaia,” and as someone who has “resided” in Brazil “for a long time.” His multiple homes, journeys, and international contacts resemble those of another sixteenth-century mariner: Durao's epic protagonist, Diogo Alvares “Caramuru.”

Keywords:   Portuguese pilot, Nuno da Silva, Santa Rita Durao, New Spain, epic protagonist, Diogo Alvares, Caramuru
