In 1961, twelve year-old Diego Miranda's life changes drastically when his parents inform him that they are moving back to their homeland, Nicaragua. The boy, who has lived only in Los Angeles, hates the idea of leaving the city he loves, his friends, and his beloved Dodgers. In the middle of this crisis, he meets the writer Scott O?Dell, the novelist who has recently won the Newbery Medal for Island of the Blue Dolphins. In spite of their age difference, the two become close friends. As a result of this relationship, Diego's teachers invite the writer to give a talk about the Spanish explorer Vasco Núñez de Balboa. O?Dell chooses to narrate the story of Balboa's colonization efforts, his sighting of the Pacific Ocean, and his eventual beheading through the eyes of Anayansi'the Indian Princess with whom he shared his life. Told alongside each other, Diego's and Anayansi's lives intertwine to create a broad, stunning portrait'set four centuries apart'of the redemptive power of storytelling.
