Alonso Truylos' saga continues after washing ashore a garden island. Surprisingly, to him, he finds the island inhabited by a compassionate people who revive him. Alonso is immersed in their rich culture, where men are Gods, priests raise children with magical talents, and recreation rules the day. The King adopts Alonso, against the wishes of a jealous hierarchy. He is granted the position of a great chief. Meanwhile, he falls in love with a higher-classed woman, Lei. This woman is also pursued by Alonso's closest friend and fellow high chief, Kahaloa. Then, unexpectedly, war erupts. The King must defend his sovereignty against brothers. Alonso Truylos is thrust into the middle of a political maelstrom. Alonso is taken from Lei, when exiled by the King. While safely living in the isolated forest, as a bird feather collector, Alonso must make a decision that powerfully influences his destiny; return to civilization and fight or keep his life as an outcast.
