The Conquistador Vasco Núñez de Balboa was born in the 14th Century and sailed to the Americas in 1510. He fled from Taxers and hid on a ship, which was taking another Conquistador, Enciso, to San Sebastian. Arriving in San Sebastian he finds the village is being attacked by local indians. Told from one of the local indians and a girl from the village’s point of view, what will happen? Will the villagers defeat the indians or will the indians defeat the villagers?
