The dust jacet explains: "The Sutil and Mexicana sailed along the coast of the Pacific Northwest in 1792. Their stated mission was to put to rest the persistent rumors of the mythical strait connecting the Pacific and Atlantic in the neighborhood of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the present-day border of Canada and the United States. This would be the last Spanish exploration along the Pacific Coast after 250 years of primacy in charting those waters."
