A fearless adventurer who defies the Crown and Church, to change history!
When Francisco Rocha, wealthy son of a prominent Spanish family in the 1650s, sets out to make his fortune, unimaginable hardship and adventure await him. Risk-taking and pragmatism are in his blood: he comes from a family of conversos, Jews who were forced to become Catholic during the Inquisition. He knows about business, having been instrumental in his family's trade selling arms to governments and breeding Arabian horses. But even so, he is unprepared for what he will find in the wider world, including the fur trade of New France, and in Potosi, the richest Spanish holding in the New World. Francisco will learn the terror of being under someone else's control, powerless and facing death. This life-changing experience will inspire in him a passion for righting wrongs and issuing his own brand of justice. In Potosi, he defies the government and the Church to make life better for the indigenous people...and he acquires dangerous enemies along the way. With the help of Satuku, an Indian leader; and Kenwa, an African prince captured as a slave, Francisco discovers Potosi's greatest secret: a secret that will make him wealthy beyond any man's wildest dreams, and which will allow him to stand behind a promise no other man in his position would ever dare to make. Based on a true story, Rocha's Treasure of Potosi will take you on the inspiring epic adventure of a man who had the bravery, honor, and commitment to do the right thing, even at the risk of his life.
