(From the publisher):
Over 300 years ago, Francisco Vasquez de Coronado led a punitive expedition against the native Aztecs who dared to oppose his plundering. The Aztecs, armed with the sacred objects of their people, began a fighting retreat - with the Spaniards in relentless pursuit...
Or so says imperious, beautiful Solita Chiltec when she hires Skye Fargo to find Coronado's trail for an archaeological dig. Fargo agrees, and soon learns that someone wants to stop him - at all costs. As they draw closer to the secrets of the past, the danger of the present turns into a bloody contest for survival in which hatred, heartbreak, and hostile Indians all play a deadly part. But they're about to find out that, even in archaeology, when you cross the Trailsman... you're history!
