It sings of how the universe came to be, how the natural world works, how divine and supernatural worlds relate to the world of humankind, how human beings relate to each other, how good and evil and life and death function in the world.

    By the winter of 1811, the armies of Napoleon had overrun most of Spain, and Joseph Bonaparte sat on the throne in Madrid. But the Spanish government had found refuge in the fortress-port of Cadiz, and the Spaniards refused to admit that they had been conquered. With a British army under Sir Thomas Graham helping to defend Cadiz, the Spanish cause seemed certain to prevail. But then the Spaniards wanted to throw Graham’s force into a reckless battle against the French. If the battle was won, the siege of Cadiz would be lifted; if the battle was lost, Cadiz would be rendered defenseless.

    John Martin's sense of adventure would lead him to achieving goals in life that many of us only dream about. Cycling around New Zealand's East Cape as a 13-year-old boy, and being part of the first BASE jump in New Zealand were just some of these. Other incidents such as getting booed off the stage while playing in the back-up band at a "Split Enz" concert, would shape the character of the person he became. The strength of this character would be tested when his Cessna Ag Wagon crop dusting aircraft crashed and burned, resulting in John receiving third degree burns to 70% of his body, face and hands.
