About this title

Synopsis:

Here is the story of a 1622 Spanish shipwrecked soldier's fantastic survival trek through coastal and inland Florida. Physical and emotional challenges of the highest order confront him on a four-year COLD MOUNTAIN-south adventure through a world few Europeans had seen. He survives the sinking of the famed silver-laden galleon Atocha in the Florida keys and is prodded in action using instinctive outdoor traits and the will to live. Written in the spirit of Daniel Defoe's ROBINSON CRUSOE, our lieutenant becomes self-reliant in a foreign wilderness, striving to return home, honor intact, aided by a sharp Toledo sword.

From the Author:

    Motivated by his family's military heritage and his reading of Don Quixote, our protagonist is spurred on to pursue a trip to the New World aboard a military galleon in 1622. Though his heart is wrenched to leave his bethrothed, one can feel the excitement that eventually builds as he sets sail. Albeit, serving the king honorably is soon forgotten as his silver-laden ship sinks in a hurricane on the return.
    Cast ashore and made to endure Indian slavery humbles him, and he inwardly becomes obsessed with escape. It comes, but with a price, paid by the death and torment of fellow escapees. Given a few pieces of eight, or pesos, on the ship, he carefully guards them on his trek, until he begins to resent both the monarchy and the coins for his plight. This consternation sets him on a dangerous mission that almost takes his life.
    His suffers further grief, both in a village and in St. Augustine's jail, but with dignity and honor, he is persistent in returning to Spain. His trials are many, both physical and emotional, but in the end is triumph.
