Ésta es su sinopsis:
This work was a finalist for the Nebula Award in 2011.
Welcome to a world of muskets and magic.
In The Elephant and Macaw Banner series, two brave adventurers--the Dutch explorer Gerard van Oost and Yoruban warrior Oludara--travel the unexplored wilderness of sixteenth-century Brazil. Along the way, they encounter a host of creatures inspired by Brazilian folklore: from the brain-sucking Kalobo to the one-legged prankster Sacy-Perey.
This first story, The Fortuitous Meeting, shows how the two protagonists first meet in sixteenth-century Brazil. Each of them, in turn, must find a way to outwit a legendary foe.
The Elephant and Macaw Banner is an award-winning series of novelettes published in magazines and podcasts around the world. For the first time, this edition unites these stories for English readers.
