Book Description

This novel is a mock epic, a satirical, and an allegorical view of a dictator and his evil influences. Two friends share their manuscripts describing one of the first European settlements in the Americas; the finding of the original Journal of Christopher Columbus; the development of a cruel dictator; his extravagant wedding; the struggle of a hero against the dictatorship; and the end of it caused by the destruction of a great tsunami. It is a description of the struggle between good versus evil. This book will be perfect for anybody interested in reading literature: historical fiction, magic realism, religion, mythology, folklore, etc. because of all the entertainment and humor involved in it.

Ever met anyone who came from a humble beginning only to grow into a power-hungry leader? This book helps to show us the culture, family and land that shapes the beginning of a new people yet how the wrong leader can change everything from the direction a country goes in all the way to who wakes up the next morning. Mysterious and unexpected things happen as we follow a president through his rite of passage.
