"A young Spaniard dreamed of great cities of gold, but found instead a challenging life among the native people of America's Great Plains.
Juan Garcia rode as an arrogant conquistador into the heart of an unexplored continent. One day, on a lone patrol, he was injured and lost amid a nation of "savages".
He knew he had little chance of surviving, or of ever returning to his homeland. But what happened from that day forward made a different man of Juan Garcia. He embarked upon a greater adventure than any he could have imagined. For, instead of hostility, he discovered a people who showed him a new way of life. And he, in turn, brought them a talisman, the Spanish Bit, that forever transformed their society."
