It would be the chances of reaching “God, glory and gold” (Duiker 456) hidden in the depths of the exotic lands and the magic beyond the sun.

For example, there would be horses, pigs, goats, sheep, cows, turkey, and etc.” (National Geographic) Livestock that was brought would allow for an easier way of life for Indians. Indians would hunt for food killing deer, buffalo and etc., but now it would be made easier with some help from a horse.
