Francisco Vaques De Cornado left home because he felt that his brother was treated better than him. As he grew older and became independent, he heard a rumor of the Seven Golden Cities and went out to find them. The first place he went in his journey is "Chibola" (New Mexico). He did not find anything there.
Later, as he goes from one state to another he finds Arizona. Not many people made it there. The people who lived there (Zuni) refused to let him in. Following as commanded, Francisco left and went off to the Colorado River, thinking there would be gold in the river. Not many people made it either. This is because of dangerous tides. In the Colorado River, no gold was found.
