Fascinating historical fiction regarding the taking of Floridaby the Spanish in 1555. The 1st person narrator is a Muslim slave from Morocco.
Estevanico was a Moroccan-Berber and one of the first known native Africans to reach the present-day continental United States. He is known by many different names, but is commonly known as Esteban de Dorantes, Estebanico and Esteban the Moor. WikipediaKind of amazing that a woman should write about a Black, male, Moorish slave and perhaps conquistador in the days of Cortez – plenty of Indians and others, 95% male.
