A well told extraordinary story I had never heard before. Includes a lot of context about the age of the conquistadores that helps set the scene for the incredible journey. I enjoyed the factual accounting combined with speculation about what various stages of the trip must have been like. The gaps are filled in without making up a new dialogue.
Charles Greber has done a fabulous job researching and presenting the characters in this most interesting tale. At first I thought his presentation of the main character's perspective was a little sappy, but then I realized he was able to put you inside his head, and it will spook you. Excellently narrated, the story unfolds at a deliberate but never boring pace that keeps you engaged.
