A good read. Finally, their story instead of history.
An interesting imagining of a disastrous Spanish expedition to Florida in the 16th century told from the perspective of a slave. The role of the colonizers and the Church in the genocide of indigenous peoples is shown, as is the humanity of the aboriginal peoples. A very enjoyable and interesting read.
A very satisfying read, well deserving its nominations for prestigious literary prizes.
very good writer
I found this book to be a very well written story of the 16th Century exploration of the southern coast of Florida by the Spaniards. The main character was fascinating to me & his story is very informative & quite interesting. I found him to be a redeeming man who knew right from wrong & struggled with his inward faith when confronted with challenges he knew he must do. Although a work of fiction, the author did much research regarding her story and characters. I learned a lot from this novel & could recommend it as a good read.
