When the great zemie Yocahu visited the Tainans long ago, he taught them to live in peace and promised to return one day. So when Columbus's caravels appear on the Caribbean, the Tainans believe that Yocahu has returned. But the Europeans are set on conquest. Every time they forced a village to accept Christianity at sword-point, they lost touch with their own god. It's not until the crippled son of a Taino chief befriends a cabin boy on Columbus's ship that the cultures merge. Among forcible pacification and genocide, the boys seek the Tainan principles of peace and love, as Sons of Yocahu.
