This book was very good. It is staged in the eyes of a 17 year old cartographer, in 1541, along the gulf of California. The book does a great job of showing the different types of people in that time; the greedy Spaniards, the hopefull catholic priests, and the confused and scared Indians. Scott O'dell has a large variety of parallel characteristics in his book, including geed and generosity, hate and love, evil and good, acts of hatred and kindness, and fear of the unknown. All in all this book was far from just adequate... It was great!
