Overview

Astonishing answers to unspoken questions during the Discovery

This is the remarkable tale of Enrique Diaz, a young fifteenth-century Portuguese Catholic who sets off to realize his dream--to find an elusive utopian paradise in the heart of Africa--accompanied by his two sidekicks, a Portuguese Jew and a Moor. Traveling by ship, cart, and caravan, the three explorers encounter perils galore--pirates and storms at sea, slave traders and murderous thieves on land. They explore the exotic casbahs of Morocco...the mysterious ruins of ancient Egypt...the hidden civilization of Abyssinia, keepers of the Ark of the Covenant...the awe-inspiring holy city of Mecca...and return again to Renaissance Europe. En route the young travelers taste the richness of each other's religions--and win the hearts of their true loves.

The Age of Discovery comes alive in all its variety in "The Incredible Adventures of Enrique Diaz."
