Sangre de Cristo: The Blood of Christ
What happens when a seventeen-year-old boy from Missouri is beaten and abandoned in Spanish New Mexico during the Mexican revolution? Joshua Kincaid finds himself alone and wounded in an alien land, a land so alien priests encourage people to steal Navajo children so they will be baptized and their souls will be saved. Saved or not, they will become slaves.
Sangre de Cristo: The Blood of Christ tells the story of life and love in a beautiful land where the mountains reflect the red of sunset and quaint villages feed the senses. Yet in this land of enchantment the poor sell themselves into peonage, pueblo Indians are held as virtual slaves at Spanish missions, and villagers raid native tribes for children to sell.
