Riassunto: An Indian rebellion occurred in Sonora during Coronado's expedition in search of El Dorado. Three Spanish conquistadors were reported killed in the uprising, but only two of the bodies were ever accounted for. Did that missing body later cause a strange war between two continents?Serpent Wind is the story of a renegade conquistador, Don Diego de Alcaraz - a.k.a. Carazal. After escaping from the North American wilderness in the early 1540's, he conspires with agents of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent to hijack the entire Spanish treasure fleet - the Flota Plata of 1553 - as it voyaged back to Spain with the gold, silver, and emeralds of the New World.The Flota Plata of 1553 was struck by a violent hurricane just after it transited Havana. Most of the galleons were lost in the tempest, their golden treasures swallowed by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Three galleons were shipwrecked on the barrier islands of Texas, with approximately three hundred survivors. Only two of these castaways survived to record the grim fate of the lost treasure fleet for history.Serpent Wind is a fictional tale that weaves through three true stories from the earliest history of North American exploration - the adventure of Cabeza de Vaca, the expedition of Coronado, and the shipwreck of the Spanish treasure fleet of 1553. It also details the bizarre, brutal war that this shipwreck spawned.Serpent Wind provides insights into forgotten episodes from American history, and also offers intriguing perspectives on issues of cultural conflict. Ultimately, Serpent Wind is a literary tale of primitive justice, from the earliest recorded history of the land we call Texas.

L'autore: George Davis was born in Nebraska in the early 1950's, and raised in a small village in the southeastern corner of that state. It was an idyllic childhood that hovered in the realm between Tom Sawyer and Beaver Cleaver. At the age of fourteen, he moved overseas with his family when his father was transferred to Tunisia in North Africa. He attended high school in Spain as a boarding student during that time. Two years later, he returned to the United States with his family and finished high school in Iowa. Upon graduating from Grinnell College, he moved to Jakarta, Indonesia and spent the next twelve years living in Southeast Asia, working in the offshore oilfields. He finally repatriated to America, but continued to work on offshore drilling rigs in Asia, West Africa, and the deepwater sectors of the Gulf of Mexico. Texas is the place that he is now content to call home. He has only recently decided to explore the ancient art of storytelling. Serpent Wind is his first novel.
