Overview

En 1543, con solo dieciséis años, deseoso de fortuna y aventuras guerreras, el joven Pedro de Ursúa viaja al Nuevo Mundo. Desembarca en Perú, confiando en que la tierra de los incas le depare, como a tantos hasta entonces, riqueza y poder; sin embargo, se encuentra con una región turbulenta, dividida entre bandos de conquistadores tan apegados a sus nuevas rapiñas que recelan de cualquier recién llegado. La llegada de su tío Miguel Díaz de Armendáriz a Cartagena lo libra de este panorama sin promesas y bajo su padrinazgo comienza una larga y codiciosa carrera de conquistas. Después, libre ya de disposiciones oficiales, se entrega a sus sueños de riqueza y de gloria.
Con todas las contradicciones de los grandes hombres –cruel y compasivo, audaz y conservador, obediente e indócil, enamorado y misógino – Pedro de Ursúa personifica las violentas pasiones que asolaron las Indias Occidentales.
