Review quote

"The writing is subtly beautiful, often moving, and says more than may be caught in one reading."

Back cover copy

In this deeply affecting novel Scott O'Dell envelops the reader in the heroic world of the conquistadors, a world that is at once somber and many-colored. ruthless they may have been, these steel-helmeted young men of Spain, but they lived their lives on the very edge of eternity with style and uncommon courage.
