Felipe’s idyllic life in 1518 Cuba is shattered when Hernan Cortes rides into it. Cortes is desperate for horses; his father has one he refuses to sell. With one lie Cortes steals the horse, throws his father into prison and takes Felipe along to be the horse’s groom. Thus begins the greatest challenge of Felipe’s young life: Get free, get home, save the family farm and exonorate his father.
