Summary

The El Dorado legend of a naked ruler who covered his body in gold dust became an obsession for conquistadores and successive adventurers in search of the sacred gold of the Indians in Central and Southern America. John Hemming, author of Red Gold, tells of the cruelty of the explorers but also of the indescribable hardships they suffered. A beguiling book illustrated with images from the Gold Museum in Bogota.
