Listing Detail Tabs

A novel of adventure and human frailties, which also introduces a politically incorrect but contentious possible solution to the unknown origins of the Maori immigrants to New Zealand.

In 1282, Carlos, Marquis do Tuella de Tanez, became the head of one of Portugal's most influential and wealthiest families. It was a time of change and discovery. In Iberia, the Moors were finally being driven out of western Europe, philosophers all over Europe were attempting to expand their knowledge of the world, and inventors were desperately trying to find patrons to finance their work. In 1286, Carlos de Tanez took advantage of this change, and set sail on a voyage of discovery that took him across to the mouths of the Amazon and the River Plate, around Cape Horn and into the Pacific, touching on the outskirts of the Inca empire, the Polynesian islands, and the virgin lands of what is now New Zealand. His ship the Hahviccii Grande was a hybrid caravel, and the largest ocean going ship of its time, and possessed characteristics and innovations that only someone of immense wealth and dedication could ever hope to gather together at that time. Gathering workers and women from the Americas and the Pacific islands, he finally abandoned them all into four small settlements in the future New Zealand, before setting sail to return to Europe, thereby providing the ancestors of the Maori people.
