Book Description: Roc Hardcover, 2003. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: S.M. Stirling's genius for "remarkable alternate history" (Library Journal) has thrilled readers, and the master of alternate history, Harry Turtledove, has called his work "outstanding." Now, in Conquistador, he explores the potential riches-and peril-in a still-new world. If you could recreate civilization, what would you do differently? San Francisco, 1945 . Ex-marine John Rolfe, newly back from the Pacific, is about to make a fabulous discovery. It happens with a flip of his ham radio switch, a blinding light, and a momentary blackout. He opens his eyes to discover a portal to an alternate world where Europeans have never set foot on the soil of the land he knows as America-and the only other humans in sight are a band of very curious Indians. Able to return at will to the modern world, Rolfe summons the only people with whom he is willing to share his discovery: his war buddies. And tells them to bring their families. What mistakes would you repeat? Los Angeles, 21 st century . Fish and Wildlife warden Tom Christiansen is involved in the bust of a smuggling operation. What he turns up is something he never anticipated: A photo of authentic Aztec priests-decked out in Grateful Dead t-shirts, and a live condor from a gene pool that doesn't correspond to any known in captivity or the wild. This find soon leads him to a woman named Ariadne Rolfe-and a secret that's been hidden for sixty years. As danger brews on both sides, two realities are threatened, and so too are the lives of everyone who crosses the boundary between them. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0451459083
