The great thing about history is how weird it can be; how the most unlikely story can turn out to be true. I just released a book based on one of the strangest true stories you are ever likely to hear; the story of Gonzalo Guerrero. Guerrero was shipwrecked on the coast of the Yucatan in 1511 and captured by the Maya, and struggled to survive and avoid the sacrificial stone.
After a hazardous struggle to survive in this bizarre and bloody new land, he became a Mayan warrior and married a Mayan woman, the beautiful and clever Zazil Ha. But several years later, other Spaniards arrived bent on conquest, and Guerrero was forced to choose between his new family and the land of his birth. Where does his loyalty lie; to his relatives and family in Spain, or to his Mayan wife and her people, now facing death or enslavement at the hands of the Conquistadors? If he abandons Zazil Ha and returns to the Spaniards, he will be treated as a hero; if he remains, he will become a renegade.
He made his choice….and made history.
Based on the true story, The Confessions of Gonzalo Guerrero plunges the reader into the dangerous and alien world of the Maya, and the tragic story of the Spanish conquest; a struggle between two worlds that only one could survive.The Confessions of Gonzalo Guerrero is written from Guerrero’s point of view and answers questions about him that have been asked for centuries.
