Full Plot

Esteban, Zia, Mendoza, Pedor and Sancho land on the island that they have seen from their raft. From what they can work out, it seems that the island is part of the Galapagos archipelago. Looking for some sign of inhabitants on the island, our friends only find giant animals: an enormous tortoise, gigantic lizards, etc. Pedro and Sancho refuse to eat such monsters. They set off to find some food more worthy of their appetites, only to faint when they come across a monstrous creature. Zia sets out to look for them. After hearing their description of the monster she explains that it is a divine savior, Vilakochiya, who resembles a snake with wings. "It is one of my people's oldest gods. Only I can't think why he should be here on this island". Our friends realize now that thy are not alone on the island. The next night Zia is borne off by a man in a canoe. Esteban swims after them and arrives on the shore of another island. He finds Zia with a young boy. He hides in order to listen to their conversation. "My name is Tao. Don't be afraid. There is no reason to fear me. I knew that you were going to come. I've known for years". Catching sight of Esteban, Tao leaps to his feet brandishing his bow and arrow. Zia begs him not to shoot and the two boys finish by making friends. Anonymous Plot not found
