He earns a fortune as a traveling merchant, exploring every part of what the Aztecs called The One World--the far lands of mountains, jungles, deserts, seacoasts.Hide synopsis

He communicates throughout the book with his chaplain, bishop of the See in New Spain, regarding especially, one specific aztec, a man called Mixtil-Dark Cloud.
