    Plucked from his small fishing village and captured by the conquistadors looking to plunder the gold of Peru, young Waman is the everyman thrown into extraordinary circumstances, caught up in history's throes. He finds himself at every major moment in the empire building of the Spanish explorers, including Francisco Pizarro, and in the culture clash and violent overthrow of the Incan leaders.
