An adventure narrated by Thomas Wingfield, an Englishman whose experiences include having his mother murdered, a brush with the Spanish Inquisition, shipwreck, and slavery before unwillingly joining a Spanish expedition to South America. The novel tells the fictionalized story of the first interactions between the South American natives and European explorers, including a number of misunderstandings, prejudice on the part of the Spaniards, and ultimately open war.

of Ditchingham in the county of Norfolk, being now of a great age and having only a short time to live, turn to pen and ink. Ten years ago, namely, in the year 1578, it pleased her Majesty, our gracious Queen Elizabeth, who at that date visited this county, that I should be brought before her at Norwich. There and then, saying that the fame of it had reached her, she commanded me to give her some particulars of the story of my life, or rather of those twenty years, more or less, which I spent among the Indians at that time when Cortes conquered their country of Anahuac, which is now known as Mexico. But almost before I could begin my tale, it was time for her to start for Cossey to hunt the deer, and she said it was her wish that I should write the story down that she might read it, and moreover that if it were but half as wonderful as it promised to be, I should end my days as Sir Thomas Wingfield. To this I answered her Majesty that pen and ink were tools I had no skill in, yet I would bear her command in
