Summary El gran jefe Tenaya y su pueblo habitan plácidamente el valle prohibido de Yosemite, a los pies del Capitán, el monolito preferido que hoy en día escalan los montañistas más atrevidos. Pero en 1850, aquella tribu tuvo que enfrentar una persecución sin tregua, una partida de ajedrez con los invasores del territorio piel roja. Petirrojo, hijo de Tenaya, sabe que su gente es de espíritu despreocupado, pero en su interior bullen las tribulaciones: la inseguridad frente a los talentos de sus hermanos, carismáticos y decididos; el temor de defraudar a su padre, y la vacilación ante el amor de Luz de Día, su amada desde niños. ¿Quién no ha temido quedar mal con quienes más le importan? A Tenaya le basta una vida simple y feliz para que su paso por la tierra sea provechoso, pero en ocasiones se necesita demostrar algo, a sí mismo y a los demás. Hasta ahora, Petirrojo no sabe para qué está en el mundo y se lo reprocha, pero se dará cuenta de que se necesita algo más que fuerza y astucia para vencer al enemigo, y poder así ser digno y libre.
Chief Tenaya and his people live peacefully in the forbidden valley of Yosemite, at the base of El Capitán, the famous monolith that today's most daring rock climbers scale. But in 1850, this tribe had to face non-stop persecution: a chess game with the invaders of the native territory. Robin, Tenaya's son, knows that his people have a carefree spirit, but inside, he is churning with insecurity in the face of his charismatic, confident brothers' talents; fear of failing his father; and hesitation over the love of Daylight, his childhood sweetheart. Who hasn't felt afraid of letting down those they love the most? For Tenaya, it's enough to have a happy, simple life so that his stay on Earth is beneficial, but sometimes he needs to show something--to himself and others. Until now, Robin doesn't know what his purpose is, and he berates himself about it, but he will soon realize that one needs more than strength and cunning to conquer the enemy, and thus be honorable and free. Would a person or a whole nation stop existing if they didn't achieve a spot in the memory of the world? What audacity must you have in this life so that others remember you?
