The Gift of El Tio








By Larry Buchanan and Karen Gans

When a world-renowned geologist discovers an enormous deposit of silver beneath a remote Quechua village in Bolivia, he unknowingly fulfills a 450-year-old prophecy that promised a life of wealth for the villagers. It also predicted alienation, despair, and eventually cannibalism. The discovery leads to the destruction of the village, and sends the geologist and his wife on an emotionally charged ten-year journey into the Quechua community.
